Phantom Assembly

Hi to all,

Kindly explain the concept of PHANTOM ASSEMBLY(With example) and configuration for that.,


Gobinath J


Dear Gopinath,

Phantom Assembly:

A logical grouping of materials.

A phantom assembly is created in engineering to describe a number of components and manage them

as a whole. The components in a phantom assembly are immediately placed in the superior assembly.

Components in an assembly are first assembled to produce the header material. Then header material

is placed in the superior assembly.


The phantom assembly "set of wheels" contains the components "front wheel" and "rear wheel." The front and rear wheels are immediately placed in the "bicycle" assembly. The "light" assembly contains the materials "bulb" and "reflector." The light components are first assembled and then the light is attached to the bicycle.

Settings to be done:

For configurations settings goto OPPQ for maintaining the values of special.key

Special procurement key value 50 must be set in the MRP2 view of the material master.

For the materials for which sp.procurement value 50 is set the system creates the planned orders and

purchase requisitions for the components of the phantom assembly.
