Before you add a new bay to your planogram, specify its parameters in this panel. A preview of the bay with the current settings is displayed in the upper right area.
Note: the bay attributes will be kept for the next time you run the application.
Note: you can further customize bays in the Modify Bay task. For example you can add and remove, resize, re-position or change colors of bay elements.
Specify dimensions as follows:
Overall width specifies the horizontal width of the bay. You can also use decimals.
The bay height can be specified with either one of the following methods:
A) Choose the Overall height and the Number of shelves if you know the bay height.
B) Choose the Gap between shelves and the Number of shelves if you the space between each shelf is more important than the overall height of the bay.
Overall height sets the overall height of the bay.
Overall height radio button: Upon typing a value for this parameter or manually checking the corresponding radio button, the Overall height will be constrained to the set value. This way, editing other values such as Number of shelves cannot change the Overall height of the bay, but will modify the Gap between shelves instead.
Gap between shelves sets the vertical empty space between shelves. All shelves are evenly spaced.
Gap between shelves radio button: Upon typing a value for this parameter or manually checking the corresponding radio button, the Gap between shelves is constrained to the set value. This way, editing other values such as Number of shelves cannot change the Gap between shelves, but modifies the Overall height instead.
Number of shelves tells how many shelves the bay will feature.
Note: Changing the number of shelves influences the Overall height if you checked the radio button in front of Gap between shelves. Inversely, changing the number of shelves modifies the Gap between shelves if you checked the radio button in front of Overall height.
Allows setting the color of the bay structure (base, back and sides). Click on a rectangle, and then choose a tint with the standard Color Dialog.
Note: shelves have a separate color parameter, so you can make the shelves a different color than the rest of the bay. See Shelf color.
Shelf width is the width of the shelves not including lateral sides.
Shelf height specifies the thickness of the shelves.
Allows selecting the color of the shelves. Click on a rectangle, and then choose a tint with the standard Color Dialog.
This check box specifies whether the bay has a back panel. You may not want one if the shelves are held by small cables for example.
Gives the vertical space between the upmost shelf and the top of the back panel. This setting also influences the bay total height.
This check box allows choosing whether you want side panels on the bay. This setting also influences the overall bay width.
Represents the thickness of each lateral side panel.
