Variant Configuration with Phantom Item in low level configuration
I have a question in the variant configuration, I am using variant configuration with many phantom items BOM with different characteristics. while trying to read the characteristics of parent rather using "$parent" or using parent in CULR functions.
In Case of phantom item, the system reads the finished product directly please find the following example
I have finished product Finished Product A with the following structure
Finished product A
Phantom Item 1
Row material 1 (while using dependency in this level with $parent it returns the characteristics of "Finished Product A" not "Phantom Item 1"
Row Material 2
This happens in low level configuration (Production order) in the high level configuration (eg. Simulation in CU50) it works fine.
Thanks in Advance.

When the BOM is exploded, every configurable material must have a configuration assigned. If it has no own configuration, it is taken from the next level above (parent material) automatically
If the material is configurable, but it does not have a configuration profile, create one by using transaction CU41. a phantom material is configurable, but has no configuration profile.
