Supplying international art without the shipping costs since 2004
Whilst it would not be flagged as a phantom item specifically, you can put the parent onto the sales order and use the explode BOM function. This will leave the parent on the order, but not as an item, and the components of the parent as individual requirements.
Depends on the controls you have in place and the requirements of the parent being an item. Is it a true phantom where you never sell it or stock it, or is it a pseudo phantom that whilst usually not sold or stocked it can be if required.
I hope this is clear and helps
