Weightage Analysis Template in Microsoft Excel

In this article, you will learn how to use Weightage Analysis in Microsoft Excel. Weightage Analysis is used to get the Weightage Score calculation based on different parameters.


In this video, I will explain you, how to get the Overall score of a Product Performance based on various parameters. We have given the different weightages to all the parameters like – Durability, Reliable, Efficient, Safe and Packaging. Total of these weightages should be exact 100%




In this table, we have entered the score between 0 to 10 in front of each parameter. Based on given Weightage on the Weightage sheet tab, it is calculating the Overall score for that Product.


You can change the score for any product using the spin button in front of each parameter or you can type it manually in the relevant cell.

Then we have displayed a column chart for each parameter score along with the green line of 10 score.

In the last visual, we have displayed the Overall Score and Status with colors. If overall score is less than 4 then, it will be in red color. If it is between 4 to 8 then it will be in yellow color. If it is greater than eight, then it will be in green color.

Now, we will add the Status visual. To add the status visual, we will take the help of Microsoft Power Point.


  • Go to a blank PowerPoint slide.
  • Insert a Rounded corner Rectangle shape from Insert tab >> shapes. Keep the height 3 cm and width 4 cm.
  • Insert an Ovel and keep the height and width as 2.5 cm.
  • Select both the shape and align them Center and Middle.
  • Go the Shape format tab >> Merge Shapes and Combine.
  • Now this is a single shape. Select the shape and remove the outline.
  • Fill the dark grey color.
  • Go to the Shape Format >> Shape Effects >> Preset >> select Preset 5
  • Go to the Shape Format >> Shape Effects >> Shadow >> No Shadow (None)
