(This is now consistent in all Systems2win templates)

Process Units of Measure can now be specified in both plural and singular form

vsm defaults

Default UOM for the entire value stream (in pink cells)

UOM override

Demand UOM can be overridden for each process, using the 2 cells just to the right of each process, to define both the singular and plural forms of each UOM.
