      I tested the FBDI functionality, but found that it was a little difficult to use. The use case was that we need to create about 50 similar work orders on mass. Only the item number will be different. Since there's no copy function, an upload was the next best option.. 

      If create a work order manually, I only need to enter the item, quantity and start date. The system will then find the latest work definition and automatically populate the operations and materials. However, if I load through FBDI, I need to populate all the operations and materials tables in the spreadsheet. This was not deemed practical for our use case. The user will need to find and export all this data. 

      My question is, is there any thoughts to make this simpler, whereby the user can just enter some work order header details and the system gets the operations and materials information from the work definition?

        Hello Sam,

        This is already supported. If you need to send only work order header, so that the system will do the work definition selection, explosion and scheduling, then you may populate the required fields in the work order header only of the xlsm template and by setting the following attributes:

        Allow Explosion = Y

        Scheduling Method = DEFAULT_SCHEDULER

          Hi Alex,

          I realised I forgot to reply. This worked perfectly. Oracle Support told me this wasn't possible so thank you.
