A planogram is used in retail stores to arrange certain items in specific locations to get the maximum number of sales. In a vending machine we use planograms similarly:
- Have all products arranged in the same place which will help with operations, continuity through all machines, helps with efficiency and profits.
- Par levels are set to reflect the rate of sales for a product in the machine so that product does not run out but there are few left when the route man shows up.
Most manufacturers of vending machines will show you where to place items for better sales.
