    List Entry
    Measurement type for pricing/productivity Choose the method used to calculate the seal price and productivity. Options are:
    By diameter (largest of X and Y) When the X and Y values are entered for the seal measurement, the system will take the largest of these values and treat it as the seal's diameter. Hence only the largest of the X and Y values is used, the other value will be discarded.
    By item The X and Y values will be ignored, the calculation will simply apply a flat-rate price or productivity value to the seal.
    By metre The X value will be rounded up to the nearest metre, the Y value will determine the per metre value to be used. Due to the rounding up, a 2.5 metre seal would be treated as though it was 3 metres. Hence this option treats each part of a metre as though it was a full metre.
    By metre (linear - largest value is length) The per metre value is determined from the smallest of the X and Y values. The length itself is the largest of the two. Note that no rounding up or down is used, hence a 2.5m seal will be treated as 2.5 times the per metre value. Hence this option treats each part of a metre pro rata.
    By square metre The X and Y values are multiplied together to give an area measurement. This measurement is used directly in the calculation.
