Bai, R.; Burke, E.K.; Kendall, G. and van Woensel, T. A New Model and a Hyper-heuristic Approach for Two-dimensional Shelf Space Allocation. 4OR - A Quarterly Journal of Operations Research, 11 (1): 31-55, 2013.


Abstract

In this paper, we propose a two-dimensional shelf space allocation model. The second dimension stems from the height of the shelf. This results in an integer nonlinear programming model with a complex form of objective function.We propose a multiple neighborhood approach which is a hybridization of a simulated annealing algorithmwith a hyper-heuristic learning mechanism. Experiments based on empirical data from both real-world and artificial instances show that the shelf space utilization and the resulting sales can be greatly improvedwhen compared with a gradient method. Sensitivity analysis on the input parameters and the shelf space show the benefits of the proposed algorithm both in sales and in robustness.
