Add a Kit item to a Kit item BOM

I would like to add a hose Kit item (a set of loose parts used to assemble a hose) to another repair Kit (a larger set of parts shipped loose as well).

Neither Kit or Phantom items seem to do what I’m looking for.
Is there a solution?

Thank you.

It is not possible to add a kit item as a component of another kit. Kit items can only have one level of detail as that detail is exploded on the Sales Order and would not support a multi-level hierarchy.

Phantom items are used in manufacturing to simplify BOM and they assign lower level items directly to the Work Order when that order is exploded.

The only thing I can suggest is you have to assign the lower level kit items directly to your Repair Kit

Thank you
