Geometric modelling for products and fixtures

Products on a shelf are not always just rectangular boxes. Products can also have a complex, three-dimensional shape. These 3D models should be mappable in a space management software, they also influence the space requirements of the products on the shelf. XPace can generate such forms itself or process standard formats (OBJ, WRL, X3D).

Actual take-up of products and shelves

Nowadays, EAN/UPC/GTIN barcodes can be found on virtually every article in the trade business. The scanners in the POS systems use the barcodes for the price lookup (PLU) and for inventory management. If data is to be collected from an existing shelf in a store, the barcodes can be used for article recognition and shelf positioning.

Rule-Based Planogramming

XPace planning functions allow products to be positioned and arranged on fixtures, individually or in groups.

However, it is much more elegant, faster and more efficient to base planning on rules.

3D Controller: Master your planogram in six dimensions

XPace planograms are three-dimensional. Articles, shelves and shops can be viewed from all sides. With a normal mouse and keyboard you can move around in an XPace planogram and view and edit the shelf and all articles in perspective. With a 6-axis mouse you have a 3D controller for the planogram, with which you have the shelf virtually in your hand.
