Sometimes you create / add an item to your venue and discover later that it's the wrong size, or wrong unit of measurement.
Before catching the error, you may have inventoried the item a few times, received it on an invoice, etc.
Common mistakes include:
Putting the correct quantity, but wrong unit of measurement. For example, putting 1000L instead of 1000ml, 12ml instead of 12oz, 1.14ml instead of 1.14L or 1140ml.
Using "unit" or "each" as the unit of measurement on a weight or volume based item. You won't be able to count partial units or map recipes / batches easily.

The good new is that you can fix this mistake easily, and all of your data (past inventories, invoices, etc) will update.
