>Fax or FAX, that what it has come down to.

"FAX" looks like an acronym or mnemonic, so I prefer "Fax."

>UOM or UM or something else for Unit of Measure.

I prefer "UOM" because it's more commonly found that way than as "UM."

>Sup., Supp., or Suppl., - For Supplementary

This is a new one to me. I'd prefer a whole other abbreviation such as
"Add'l" because "Sup" can lead to tons 'o other terms.

>Do your developers use a period at the end of abbreviations on their field
>e.g., Amt. or Amt - For Amount
> Suppl. - Supplemental
> Contr. - Contract

I've seen this both ways, but generally they use a period.
