Metric vs. imperial ETIM units in BMEcat

Hello!

I have a question regarding the possibility of using metric/imperial units in ETIM, and how does that work in a BMEcat. Is there a place in the BMEcat to declare which kind of units one is using throughout the ETIM features in the BMEcat? Or only metric units can be used in the ETIM information inside a BMEcat?

Thanks very much,

Roberto

Please see this topic http://community.etim-international.com/conversations/etim-unit-of-measure?highlight=metric. There is also a PowerPoint attached to that, that briefly explains the solution for imperial units. So no special solution is needed for BMEcat, because if a feature has a metric and imperial unit you can easily recognize the imperial variant by the feature code that starts with EFI instead of EF. Let me know if it is still not clear.
