    Hi Shubhamoy

    So below is my understanding.

    Planogram is visual represenation of how and where the retail products in store will be placed on shelves or racks within the store. Its essentially part of space planning in retail store. SAP IS retail system doesn't have capabilities for space planning at planogram level.

    Nearest SAP can get is layout modules and we can assign the articles to these layout modules along with other details like the shelf quantity or facing qty etc. Therefore thsi is more like a logical represenation of how these articles are placed in store.

    SAP provide integration between layout application and any space management system. This allow us to logically plan the store layout in SAP and then send it to space planning application which can plan it visually with details available to the level of size of each product. This can then be sent bakc to SAP to allow article listing in those stores at specific area.

    Hope information should help you.

    Thanks & Regards

    • Hi Shubhamoy

      Layout is one of the article listing method available in SAP retail. The concept is to integrate listing process with visual planning.

      You create Layout and Layout module in SAP.

      Assignment: Multiple articles to Layout module (latest version)

      Multiple Layout Module to Layout

      single Layout to Assortment.

      Listing: We list assortment module and all the articles in it will be listed to the assortment users via layout.

      Please refer link Layout Listing to get more understanding on it. For detailed document Please refer SAP Retail library documents.

      Thanks & Regards
