Basic Units and Packages Columns

In some reports there are columns with the number of basic units or packages in the planogram. This manual explains what the values in each column mean.

    • Horizontal Packages: The number of packages placed side by side in the planogram.
    • Vertical Packages: Number of packages placed on top of each other in the planogram.

    • Front Packages: Number of packages placed in front = number of packages side by side x number of packages on top of each other.

    • Max Fitting Height Packages: How many packages of this product can fit in the shelf in which the package is placed, in height. 

    • Max Fitting Depth Packages: How many packages of this product will fit in the shelf in which the package is placed, in depth.

    • Max Fitting Packages: What is the maximum capacity of the shelf in which the package is placed if the number of front packages remains the same. Calculation: Front Packages x Max Fitting Depth Packages.

    • Max Planned Depth Packages: How many packages are actually placed in depth in the planogram.

    • Max Planned Packages: How many packages in total are actually placed in the planogram.

    • Packages Shelf Capacity: What is the maximum shelf capacity if the number of packages displayed in width remains the same. Calculation: Horizontal Packages x Max Fitting Height Packages x Max Fitting Depth Packages.

    • Horizontal Basic Units (Min Planned): The minimum number of units planned to be displayed in width (side by side). This is the minimum set on the block for the product.

    • Horizontal Basic Units (Max Planned): The maximum number of units planned to be placed in width (side by side) = the number of pieces actually placed in width in the planogram.

    • Front Basic Units (Min Planned): The minimum number of units planned to be placed in front (width x height). This is the minimum set on the block for the product (min width x min height).

    • Front Basic Units (Max Planned): The maximum number of units planned to be placed in front (in width x height) = the number of pieces actually placed in front in the planogram.

    • Basic Units (Min Planned): The minimum number of units planned to be placed in total (width x height x depth). This is the minimum set on the block for the product (min width x min height x min depth).

    • Basic Units (Max Planned): The maximum number of units planned to be placed in total (in width x in height x in depth) = number of pieces actually placed in the planogram in total.

    • Basic Units (Max Capacity): What is the maximum capacity of the shelf in which the product is placed if the placed front basic units remains the same. 

    • Basic Units (Shelf Capacity): What is the maximum capacity of the shelf if the placed horizontal basic units remains the same.

The columns relating to packages and basic units show the same information, but where they relate to the package column, a package that may contain more than one basic unit is taken into account. For example, a family package of 4 yoghurts. If you do not use packages in Quant, each package automatically has only 1 basic unit and then these columns will display the same value.
