I want to model a Printed-Circuit-Board with several electrical devices on it.
Let's say we have 1 PCB and want to solder 10 resistors to it.
So I would create a new process/flow, which I would name "PCB ASSY".
And in Inputs/Outputs, I would add the amount of 10 "resistors".
But what is their "Unit" ?? I don't find anything that matches to something, like piece, part, device etc.
This is currently the first problem I'm facing as a beginner.
Any hints ? Any YouTube videos where I might see how such a problem can be solved ?
With Chicken Pasta Youtube Videos everything is related to mass or weight, so I can't learn that much to use for a "Printed Circuit Board" with several electrical devices of same type on it.
Any hints/support is appreciated.
Thank you very much in advance.

You should have "number of items", or "items" e.g. (depending on the database).

Thank you Andreas. Now it's understood.
It was probably because I tried to use the free Agribalyse database as "base", but which doesn't show me "number of items" or "items" :-)
I've checked it now once again with creating a new database and with this I'm able to choose "Item(s)" for "Unit" with the "Resistor" that I have created as flow.
Ok, still a lot to learn for me :-) Thanks once again.
