Phantom Manufacturing Part
Phantom manufacturing parts are parts or assemblies in your mBOM which cannot be allocated to process plan operations. From a business perspective, these parts and assemblies are typically items that are non-stockable. A phantom manufacturing part can have child parts which are not defined as phantom manufacturing parts. Non phantom manufacturing parts that appear underneath the phantom manufacturing part are allocated to the process plan that is related to the first parent non-phantom manufacturing assembly.
3. Click OK to save your changes.
You must have the Modify or Modify Identity permission on the object to see this action. If you have the Modify permission, you can change attributes such as the name or end item. With the Modify Identity permission, you can change attributes such as the organization identifier or the number. You can review your current permissions using the Edit Access Control action on the object.
