WMI returns a cryptic code number of every distinct Windows SKU:

 
PS> Get-CimInstance -ClassName Win32_OperatingSystem | Select-Object -ExpandProperty OperatingSystemSKU
48   
 

To translate this number into a meaningful text, for example for reporting purposes, try this:

$OperatingSystemSKU = @{
  Name = 'OperatingSystemSKUText'
  Expression = {
    $value = $_.OperatingSystemSKU
    
    switch([int]$value)
      {
