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

Enter Bill of Materials (BOM) in BOM sheet:

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.

Manufacturing Inventory Template – Enter Raw material Purchase and Product Sale Orders

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

Step 3: 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

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.


The template cannot handle complex scenarios where sub-assemblies of raw materials are raw materials to the final product
