8. Use the Parameters page to define modes of operation and default values for an
organization that affect functions such as bill definition, bill deletion, and
assemble-to-order configuration numbering.

Define bill of material parameters for each organization in which you use bills or
routings. Bill parameters are specific to, and must be defined for, each organization.
This ensures access to resource, outside processing, and overhead cost information
for certain cost management functions.

Step Action
19. Set Use Phantom Routings parameter to specify whether phantom routing
resources and overhead costs (including those for outside processing resources
assigned to phantom routing operations) are charged to the parent or higher level
assembly. Setting this parameter also implies department inheritance for resources;
thus, phantom resources can be used by departments that they are not owned by or
assigned to as a borrowed resource.

Click the Use Phantom Routings option.

Step Action
20. Set the Inherit Phantom Op Seq parameter to specify whether phantom
subassembly components inherit the operation sequence number of their parent or
higher level assembly, or maintain their own operation sequence number. This
parameter is set at the inventory organization level, and applies to all phantoms
within a single inventory organization.

Click the Inherit Phantom Op Seq option.
