    Lab Productivity

    Here is some data I need help with (spreadsheet attached)

    I have lab technicians working 24/7 and I am trying to see how best to display “lab technician Efficiency” in excel…….(Who is the most efficient of them all). I am looking for the creative mind


    THANKS in advance

    Omer:
    Place the technician's initials next to the number of samples analyzed (adding columns between shifts after row 31).
    Create a list of technicians separate from your data fields.

    Doing a countifs next to each name on your list of techies will give you the number of shifts the tech. worked.
    Now do a sumif which will result in the number of samples analyzed by that technician.

    Now divide the number of samples per tech by the number of shifts. Or, use averageif by tech by shift. Sort the table if you like by efficiency.

    Simple.

    That assumes that there is always backlog to process, and that techs are not penalized for their having no work to do.

    Yes, SHG, But......then what about the 'goody, goody, two shoes' who is always sucking up to Omer and grabs more than everyone else :-)

    I think you would possibly need a 'Difficulty' rating assigned to each sample analyzed then use countif unless of course all of the analysis procedures are exactly the same and take the same amount of time.

    @BlindAlley
    You mean you want to penalize the employee who goes to work to actually work in favour of those who show up to do the minimum possible

    I re-arranged the data to be 1 record per row and one field per column combining both of your charts.

    Hi Doverman - How did you re-arrange data? Did you type it manually or ???

    Re: Lab Productivity

    I did it manually as it is a "one of" as an example of how to input data so that it is actually useful to create reports with. This was quickly done mostly with copy and paste.
    If you want to quickly enter the dates so that you have 3 of the same date then increment by one day, this formula will do that. It assumes the dates to actually start in A3 and go down the column. A date preceding the actual start date by 1 day is entered in A2.
    Enter this in A3 and fill down and format as a date.
