An investigation of novel approaches for optimising retail shelf space allocation
Bai, Ruibin (2005) An investigation of novel approaches for optimising retail shelf space allocation. PhD thesis, University of Nottingham.
This thesis is concerned with real-world shelf space allocation problems that arise due to the conflict of limited shelf space availability and the large number of products that need to be displayed. Several important issues in the shelf space allocation problem are identified and two mathematical models are developed and studied. The first model deals with a general shelf space allocation problem while the second model specifically concerns shelf space allocation for fresh produce. Both models are closely related to the knapsack and bin packing problem.
