Dynamic Production Schedule Of Dates

Occasional Visitor

I work for a small company who manufactures kitchens in Oxfordshire.  We work on the basis of being able to make 9 kitchen units per day, 4 days a week - so a kitchen that has a total of 27 units would take 3 days to complete.


As there are many external factors that can delay or bring forward the manufacturing dates, there are many occasions where the schedule needs to be adjusted to suit this - we currently write our schedule of dates/ production schedule on a whiteboard in the workshop so when it has to be changed it can be very time consuming.


I am wondering if there is a way to utilise excel to make this more efficient. For example, I am ideally wanting to change a specific customers finish date and the rest of the customers dates automatically update, chronologically, to suit. 


The columns could be something like: Customer Name, Kitchen Size, Estimated Time, Finish Date


If any more information is needed please let me know, any help would be greatly appreciated
