Configurator Developer Repository A Configurator Model will be present in the Repository for each ATO (Assemble to Order) or PTO (Pick to order) Model in your toplevel BOM. Upon opening each Model, the entire BOM structure will be displayed for those items below the ATO or PTO model selected. Should the selected Model contain other Models, these will appear as Reference Models. Refer Fig. 4 for the referencing of the BOM models in the Repository.
