Excel totals by filter - Automated

I need to create an Excel sheet that supervisors will be entering data into on a daily basis that will how many pieces were produced by process.  These supervisors do not have any Excel experience so I need to make things as simple as possible.  This data will be on going and some jobs may take several weeks before it is completed.  Once a job is completed I need to total the pieces produced by the process that was performed and the total hours that it took.  There are just (5) different types of processes and not all of them will be used on each job.  But at the end of the job I need to know that 'X' number of hours were spent performing 'Y' process.  During the course of a month there will be one hundred to two hundred different jobs.  When the job is complete the supervisors need to take this information and enter it into our ERP system.  Because of how the ERP system works, they will need all the totals at the same time.  They will be entering in the total hours used for each process into the ERP system.  

I thought about putting some sumif statements to sum up each one of the 5 process types and that would work; except I'd like to not  display this unless there is a filter on to filter only one job at a time.  Is there a way to achieve this?  Or is there a better way to handle what I'm trying to accomplish?
