General Introduction
1. Workbook: There is an Excel template workbook (or file) for each chapter, e.g. Chap2.xltm is a workbook.
2. Worksheet: Each workbook is made up of worksheets (or pages), the name of each worksheet is on
the tab at the bottom and you can open a worksheet by clicking on the tab.
hyperlinks to the other worksheets in the workbook. You can open a worksheet by clicking on the
4. Clear Button: The Clear button is used to clear all input data from the template. When you
click on the Clear button a message box will appear and you can confirm by clicking on OK.
5. Data input area: the data input area is shaded, you cannot enter data except in the shaded area.
You may enter either numbers or formulas, be sure to begin a formula with an = sign (e.g. =6*40*140).

Example 2: Productivity per Worker Hour (note: this corresponds to example 2 in the textbook)
1. Select the Examples 2,3 worksheet.
2. Clear and re-enter data, although the data is in the template, you may want clear it (press the Clear
button and confirm with OK) and demonstrate re-entering the data. The data includes Output Units,
Number of Workers or Machines, and Hours per worker or machine. Each line you enter will be
computed separately.
3. Computation, the template will compute the productivity per hour using the following formula:
Productivity =

Units Produced
(Workers or Machines) x Hours

Note that Workers or Machines may be left blank and the denominator with simply be Hours.
4. Graph, the graph is a simple bar chart comparing the productivity for each line entered.

## Example 3: Multifactor Productivity (note: this corresponds to example 3 in the textbook)

1. Select the Examples 2,3 worksheet.
2. Clear and re-enter data, although the data is in the template, you may want clear it (press the Clear
button and confirm with OK) and demonstrate re-entering the data. The data includes Output (in units
or dollars), Labor costs, Machine costs, Material costs, and Overhead costs. Each line you enter will
be computed separately.

3. Computation, the template will compute the productivity per dollar using the following formula:
Productivity =

Output
(Labor cost + Machine cost + Material cost + Overhead cost)

Note that inputs must be in dollars, and one or more inputs may be left blank.
4. Graph, the graph is a simple bar chart comparing the productivity for each line entered.
