Enter list of parts or products in the Products sheet as shown below

Inventory Tracker - Enter List of Products
Inventory Tracker – Enter List of Products

The Sales Quantity column is calculated based on sales orders that we will be entering soon.

Enter list of raw materials you use in your business in the Raw Materials sheet.

Inventory Template - Enter Raw Materials used in Business, their starting inventory and Re-Order Point
Inventory Template – Enter Raw Materials used in Business, their starting inventory and Re-Order Point
  • Starting Inventory: In this sample data, we have 10 Apples and 10 Bananas in stock when we begin using the template.
  • Re-Order Point: We have re-order points (Wikipedia Article on Re-Order Point) set for each raw material.
  • Available Now: Displays the current stock level of each raw material.
  • To Order: When current stock for a raw material goes below its re-order level, this field displays YES. Also, the template highlights the raw material name in red font.

Use this raw material stock register format in excel to handle all your raw materials availability.

Enter Bill of Materials (BOM) in BOM sheet

Inventory Template: Enter Bill Of Materials for each product
Inventory Template: Enter Bill Of Materials for each product

In the sample above, 1 unit of Banana Berry Shake is created from 1 Banana, 5 Strawberries and 10 Blueberries. 1 unit of Apple Banana Shake is created from 2 Apples and 2 Bananas. Unit of Measure column is just for your reference.

Once you have entered BOM for all your products, the initial set up is done.

Entering purchase and sale orders in Orders sheet.

As a manufacturing business, you may buy raw materials from your suppliers and sell the finished products to your customers. So, there are two key transactions – Purchase and Sale.

We can enter Purchase and Sale Orders in a single table in Orders sheet.

Excel Inventory Template – Enter Raw material Purchase and Product Sale Orders
  • Order Type: Order P1 is to purchase 50 Apples and 20 Bananas – So, we use Order Type of PURCHASE. Order S1 is an order to sell 5 Banana Berry Shakes. We use SALE order type.
  • Order Date: Date when the order is placed.
  • Expected Date: Date when the inventory is impacted. For example, order P1 was placed on 3rd Jan, but raw materials will reach us only on 4th Jan. So, Order date is 3rd Jan and Expected Date is 4th Jan.
  • Product or Raw Material Name: The template allows drop down selection for product / raw material name. If the order type is Purchase, it will allow Raw Materials and if order type is Sale, it will allow Products.
  • Quantity: Enter quantity or units of items on the order

If an order has 5 line items, then enter as 5 rows.

Check Availability

Before entering a new Sale order, if you would like to check the current capacity for a product, you can easily do that.

Inventory Availability - Check capacity to make a Product
Inventory Availability – Check capacity to make a Product

When you select a product, the template runs the calculations to figure out how many units of the product can be manufactured using the raw materials in stock right now. In the image above, we see that we can make 13 Apple Banana Shakes.


This free excel template for manufacturing company cannot handle complex scenarios where sub-assemblies of raw materials are raw materials to the final product.

  • Just want to tell you how awesome this spread sheet is. We are a small craft based provider of custom jewelry and needed a BOM and Inventory system. Your spread sheet is the perfect solution as we can now account for the components that go into each item and reduce the inventory levels with each sale. This has improved our costing abilities as well.

    • Thanks for using our template and sharing a positive experience.
      We always endeavor to exceed expectations.

      Best wishes

  • Excellent web site. A lot of helpful info here. I’m sending it to some pals ans additionally

  • Is there any way to adjust the inventory levels aside from Purchases and Sales. If we need to adjust a quantity after counting the stock does the template offer an adjustment entry?

    • Thanks for using the template. Currently, that is the only way to adjust inventory levels. Please try entering a dummy sale order to reduce inventory.
      Best wishes.

  • Hi!

    Do you have any solutions that overcome the limit of sub-assembling raw materials that are raw materials to the final product?

    • Thanks for your message.

      The template is not designed to handle the sub assembling to the other raw materials. We might have this feature in the next release.
