These need changing all the time and thus the loader can be used to handle all of this in one upload.
The OPM Master Data Loader contains the following features:
- OPM Formulas: allows users to create, update and delete Products, By-Products and Ingredients & attachments.

- OPM Process Operations: Create, update and delete operation activities and the activity resources.
- OPM Process Routing: Create, update and delete Oracle Process Manufacturing Routings.
- Also add, update and delete Routing Steps and Step Dependencies. Attachments are also supported.
