PDS (Phantom Assemblies)
In R/3, the routing structure is built off of a multilevel BOM structure with phantom assemblies. The Phantom Assemblies are designated by a Special procurement Key (50) in the Material Master Structure.
As a result, the capacity requirements after BOM explosion does not fall on the phantom Material, but on the component levels of the phantom BOM's.
Is it possible to use a CIF user exit to change the special procurement key while CIF'ing the PDS to APO. The objective is to "un"phantom that level of the BOM structure so that we can find capacity requirements at that level? Is there a simpler way to achieve this?
