The Product Levels Addon allows you to set Selling Priorities for Products with associated Bill of Materials, when the same BOMs are used for several products. Selling priority works in combination with the Minimum Threshold value ONLY and is used for setting the products with lower priority out of stock, when the higher priority products reach the Minimum Threshold.
Selling Priority feature only works alongside the Minimum Threshold, with the BOM Stock Control option enabled and only for products whit associated BOM. You can learn how to enable BOM Stock Control here.
