An assembly whose BOM was created with reference to a sales order, but whose header material however, is not a component in the multi-level BOM for the sales order item.

- It was created with reference to a sales order item.
- Its header material has not yet been inserted into the multi-level BOM for the sales order item.

- A reference to the sales order and to the sales order item
- No reference to the multi-level BOM of the material that you entered in the sales order item

Detached Order Assembly Creation
 
You only create a detached order assembly if, for example, you have to design, order or assemble certain components, before the design of the whole product is complete. You do not have to
decide until later, at which point you want to insert the detached order assembly.
 
You have already entered the material, into which you later want to insert the detached order assembly, in a sales order.
