How to setup Unit Of Measures

I’m new to Acumatica coming from QB. There I could define a “family or set” that I set a name and define several conversions.

For example, I had created the family or set Box12 that had these units:
Each  conversion 1 
Case 6 conversion 6
Case 12 conversion 12


Then I could go and assign this family or set to a number of products.


How can I do such a thing in Acumatica?

Once you have these conversions set up, you can then add them to the appropriate items.
