Article “Shelf space dimensioning and product allocation in retail stores” accepted at European Journal of Operational Research
We are happy to announce that our article “Shelf space dimensioning and product allocation in retail stores” was accepted for publication in the European Journal of Operational Research (VHB: A).
Retail shelves are adjustable by varying the number of shelf boards as well as the height and depth of each shelf board. Shelf planners adjust the boards accordingly at regular intervals when they create the shelf plans and allocate products. Current shelf planning models assume given shelf configurations and allocate only products. However, the dimensioning of a shelf segment and product allocation are interdependent. For instance, the height of one segment may be reduced if only small products are allocated or products cannot be stacked.
