What applications are you using to enter Sales Orders and MOs?
If you are using CSM and OBPM, and you have Integrator or Enterprise Integrator you can add a custom edit to prevent the situation.
Also at R9, in EPDM we added support to control the use of Item Revisions by Sales and Procurement. So depending on the Item Revision's Implementation Status, you can prevent an Item from being used on Sales Orders, Puchase Orders or Manufacturing Orders. Again, this is only in CSM, PM and OBPM.

Subject: [MAPICS-L] Sales Orders with Phantoms XA 9 /POWERLINK
I am trying to fix our issues with how we are processing our phantoms
today. In my current system I have a special program that runs when
creating MO orders. This program does not work in powerlink PDM so I am
trying to remove it. We are using XA version 9 green screen and
powerlink. I understand how to use the phantoms and how the costing
rollup works with them. I am planning to have two different part
numbers one for if it is built for a final assembly and the other for a
replacement part. What I am trying to do is remove the capability of the
sales group from entering a sales order for the phantom item. Is there a
way to make the system not allow a phantom to be inputted into the sales
