Does it bother anyone else when someone on this forum uses “SKU” as an abbreviation for “SketchUp”?
It bothers me - because “SKU” is fairly universally used in inventory management systems at the manufacturer, distributor and retail levels. In those contexts, it refers to “Stock Keeping Unit” - the basic unit of inventory.
I vastly prefer “SU” as an abbreviation for “SketchUp” because, in my mind, it doesn’t trigger my long mental association of SKU with Stock Keeping Unit. EVERY time I see “SKU” on this forum, my mind tries to interpret the post in inventory terms! It often takes me 2-4 reads before I realize “Duh! They mean SketchUp - not Stock Keeping Unit!”
This is not something I’m ever likely to even mention in any post that uses “SKU” - just a minor rant on how use of “SKU” in this forum can throw people with inventory experience for a loop!
