Production Line Efficiency Report Format and Formula (Download Template)

When it comes reporting performance of a production line the first report comes in mind is efficiency and production report. I have earlier posted articles on preparing monthly efficiency report and method of calculating efficiency of a production line. If you have already read those articles, you don’t need to read this one. Yes, I have shared additional thing in this post that might attract you to continue reading this post. I have shared one excel template with formula for preparing efficiency report of a production line. By using this template you can quickly prepare your report.

Our object is to prepare an efficiency report of a product line. It may be daily efficiency report or monthly efficiency report. It may be daily efficiency data for a month (See below image) for a specific line. The reporting format depends on your desired output data and you can design your report format as you wish.

Let’s prepare daily production report for a month for a line. Take a look list of data you need to prepare efficiency reports.

  • Line output – number of piece produced by the line
  • Total manpower worked on the line. 
  • Total hours – You need to calculate total hours (minutes) worked by all workers in that line. 
  • Garment SAM – SAM of the style you are making in that particular line
Efficiency calculation formula is shown here.

Line efficiency (%) = (SAM produced / Total minutes worked)*100


SAM produced = (Garment production * SAM)
Total minutes worked = (Total manpower * Shift hours * 60)

Learn how to calculate operator efficiency for detailed efficiency calculation method.

In the excel template as shown in the above image, I have added formula for calculating SAM produced, total minutes worked and efficiency on the particular day. You just need to fill fours information – marked A, B, C and D on the report header cells. Efficiency data will be calculated automatically. Last three columns are protected so that formula could not be deleted by mistake.

This template in made for one production line. Copy this sheet and create format in other sheet for other production lines. In a single file create multiple sheets for all your product lines. Click on the following button to download this file.

Save the file in the desired folder and use this format for preparing production line efficiency report. For further help you can reach us by writing mail.
