Stock unit & packing list multiplier

Hi, a multiplier for certain type of stock qty. would be great.
It multiplies the pack qty with the item per pack qty to get the actual stock qty.

like i am billing 1 pack which has 10 bottles (stock units), this multiplier can be predefined while making the item master & would fetch the same everytime a sales or purchase invoice is being created.

this is helpful in cases which has peculiar stock units, like in my case. Paper rolls are stocked in pack units but billed in stock units with very difficult to remember & easy to make a mistake with.

a 5" paper roll is of type 1 of brand 1 is 22.866 sq meters.

then there is 5", 6", 8", 10", 12", 20", 24", 30", 40"

then there are 6 different brands.

then there are special sizes also like 4", 4.5"

then there are variable lenghths like 93 meter / 186 meter.

so all in all about 100 SKU.. all unique with unique stock qty (sq. meters) in them. 
its very prone to make mistakes with, so i am seeking this, so that i can enter it once in the item master & be stress free about recurring mistakes by clerks.
