Phantom assembly (Purchase order)

Dear all,

We are finding solution to maintain compiance information for Batteries, REACH, Packaging and RoHS.

We are busying some products from suppliers/manufactures which we are selling to customers as a part of project delieverables, In short it is BTS- Buy to Sell senario.

To maintain its compliance information we are planning to create BOM for such products which will have few items as Phantom (its information will be required for maintaining compliance data)

We are not sure how this will progress if I am creating purchase order for this asm. which has few items as Phantom? Can some one gives me details of different behaviours?

Please share information if some one has used such techniques in BTS.

    Form purchase order point of view it's totally indifferent whether you have phantom assy or not.

    The only case the PO can handle BOM (in standard system) is the subcontracting scenario. In IS-Retail there's a so called structured article scenario but even in that scenario it is not the PO where the BOM is used to get the components.

    The BOM may also be used in empties management in PO.

    But I'm not aware of any othere scenarios where BOM is used in PO
