      Hi,

      To say in very general terms, phantom assembly is a logical or imaginary assembly which comprises of components, so actually the requirements are created for the components of the phantom assembly but not for the phantom assembly.

      So let's say for your convenience you can mark one component in the BOM components as phantom assembly but this component(phantom assembly) is made of two or several components, so when this BOM explodes during MRP run the requirements (planned orders/ purchase req's) are created for the components within the phantom assembly and not for the phantom assembly, it just merely plays a role of a imaginary component. Technically speaking the requirement of the higher assembly (phantom assembly) is passed onto the components within the phantom assembly.

      And the most important thing is that the components within the phantom assembly is not assembled to make the phantom assembly.

      And obviously you need to assign the appropriate procurement type for these types in the special procurement type in the material master.

      Hope this make the concept a little clear to you.

      for phantom assembly, requirement is generated for its BOM materials not for the assembly.

      It is used when you want to create dependent requirements for the raw materials of a sub-assy only not for the sub-assy

    Dear Karthik,

    I think you are new to SAP PP forums,I request you to first serach in the forums related to your topic

    and if you are unable to get some satisfactory result means then you can post that.

    For your query check this,

    1.Phantom assembly's are nothing but the logical grouping of materials,which's widely used from the

    design point if view and not from the production side.Say suppose if 2 component's B and C are used to

    make A,where the actual assembly of A wont happen as an individual production process.

    2.This phantom assembly will be used mostly for in-house manufactured semi finished products.

    3.Generally stocks or production confirmation will not be made for this phantom items.

    4.If you want to use an assembly always as a phantom assembly then you can set a special

    procurement key 50 in MRP2 view of the material master and if you want to use as a phantomassembly

    only for certain assemblies,then you can set this key at the BOM level under component's detail.

    5.System creates the planned orders/pur.requisitions only for the components of the phantom assembly

    and not the Phantom assembly.

    Check and revert back.

    Regards
