Abstract (en)

[origin: WO0241110A2] A system and method improves sales at point-of-sale locations (10) by monitoring on a per package consuer good (12) per point of sale basis sales, out-of-stock sales, and cut-line inventory. Hence, on a per packaged consumer good per point of sale basis, sales and out-of-stock sales can be compared (14) to determine if sales were lost to inadequate inventory. Moreover, comparing cut-line inventory to out-of-stock sales enables a determination of whether the lost sales were a result of inadequate ordering or failed shipments of ordered goods (16, 18, 20, 22).
