XPace Space Management is based on a series of concepts that cover all steps of planogramming, from shelf planning, shelf evaluation, versioning and restructuring to documentation – even for complex, non-linear situations.
In space management, products and fixtures are combined into a virtual shelf. XPace uses product master data, geometric descriptions and logistical constraints as well as the geometries and behavior of fixtures and displays. Together with customer and market information, this results in a planogram.
Planogram, fixtures and product allocation
Virtual shelf planning generates a planogram that manages the data of all constructive elements and products in a project. The general process of planogramming follows this general scheme:
- Define assortment
- Generate planogram
- Assemble the rack frame
- Use and place products
- Correct and individualize
- Rate and adjust
- Rate conclusively
- Document and report
- Export and trigger follow-up processes
- Optimise over time with target/actual comparison
