Voyager Assortment Planning

Identify the optimal merchandise mix to drive revenue by store

For many retailers, perfecting item assortments—determining the best set of products for each store to carry at each point in time—is a top priority and a delicate task. Assortment planning helps maximize sales by specifying the optimal number of SKUs within a merchandise category or group to be sent to each location. Effective assortment planning manages important tradeoffs between three elements, including how many different categories to carry (breadth), how many SKUs to carry in each category (depth), and how much inventory to stock of each SKU.

The goal of assortment planners is to pre-select the right mix of merchandise to maximize sales and profit for a specified time period. The assortment plan converts the merchandise plan into SKU-level decisions that take into account the financial objectives and seasonality of merchandise, as well as constraints such as fixed store space.
