What is a Planogram / POG?

Below is an example of a very basic Free-Standing Rack Display POG.

  1. The shelf number these items should go on. Usually Shelf 1 or “Base” will be the bottom shelf, and you will work your way left to right, going up.
  2. The number of facings the item needs to have on the shelf. (“NOF”)
  3. The Item SKU and UPC codes. Used to ensure the correct items are in the right locations on the shelf.
  4. The distance between shelves. This example shows there should be 9 inches of space between the top of shelf 1 and top of shelf 2.
  5. The number of units of an item that the shelf can fit. This example shows that the shelf can fit 15 Helmns Real Mayo, (5 items per facing).
  6. The size of the item, (one unit). This example states that it’s a 20 ounce item.
  7. The width of the actual item. This example shows the width of this item is 3.55inches.

The process of completing a major reset will be very similar to how you would execute a basic reset. Major resets however will be more involved, as they could require…

  • Shelf-height adjustments.
  • Fixture / Signage integration.
  • Large amount of discontinued items to be removed.
  • Large amount of new items to be placed.
  • Substantial amount of product rearranging / movement.
  • Section width size expanding or decreasing, (IE: an 8’ section expanding to 16”).

Most POGs, especially for major resets, will include a Discontinued / New item List. This sheet will show you exactly which items need to be removed permanently from the set, and which brand new items need to be placed into the set, (example below)…
