This Loader is designed for manufacturing processes associated with formulas and recipes. In process manufacturing, the factors are ingredients, not parts; formulas, not bills of materials. Recipes and Formulas are maintained in different areas within Oracle. This loader contains the ability to maintain both Recipes and Formulas.
Typically users will Create, Update and delete both formulas and recipes but this is a slow process in EBS as formulas contain Products, By-Products and Ingredients and Recipes with plant/laboratory information, customers, steps and validity rules. These need changing all the time and thus the loader can be used to handle all of this in one upload.
