How to define intermediary product once and have all the components BOM structure on the MO ?

Here is my scenario :

Finished product 1 is made with :

  • 2 x Intermediary product 1
  • 2 x Intermediary product 2

Intermediary product 1 is made with :

  • 1 x component 1
  • 1 x component 2

Intermediary product 2 is made with :

  • 1 x component 3
  • 1 x component 4

Finished product 2 is made with :

  • 1 x Intermediary product 1
  • 2 x Intermediary product 2

We want to define intermediary products only once and we want to have all the components on the MO when producing finished products.

Create all your products first :

Finished product 1 : Stockable, MTO, Produce Finished product 2 : Stockable, MTO, Produce Intermediary product 1 : Stockable, MTO, Produce Intermediary product 2 : Stockable, MTO, Produce component 1 : Stockable, MTO, Buy component 2 : Stockable, MTO, Buy component 3 : Stockable, MTO, Buy component 4 : Stockable, MTO, Buy

Create your BOM

Finished product 1 is made with : Normal BOM

  • 2 x Intermediary product 1
  • 2 x Intermediary product 2

Intermediary product 1 is made with : Phantom BOM

  • 1 x component 1
  • 1 x component 2

Intermediary product 2 is made with : Phantom BOM

  • 1 x component 3
  • 1 x component 4

Finished product 2 is made with : Normal BOM

  • 1 x Intermediary product 1
  • 2 x Intermediary product 2

In MRP > Configuration > BOM Components, edit the lines where the Parent BOM are finished products and change their BOM type to Phantoms.

Generate a MO for Finished product 1 and 2, confirm them and you will get all the components as products to consume.

When I create a BOM for a product, there is an option in the BOMs form view to set it as Phantom. Yet, going through Settings > Manufacturing > Configuration > BOM Components, we seem to be accessing a different piece of data. What is the difference between the two?
