Study on the Design of Supermarket Store Layouts: The Principle of “Sales Magnet“
This study analyses store layout among the many
factors that underlie supermarket store design, this; in terms of what to
display in a shop and where to place the items. This report examines
newly-opened stores and evaluates their interior shop floor layouts,
which we then attempt to categorize by various styles. We then
consider the interaction between shop floor layout and customer
behavior from the perspective of the supermarket as the seller. At this
point, we focus on the “store magnets"–the main sections within the
shop likely to attract customers into the store.

Case Study of Bus Tourist-s Sightseeing Time in a New Sightseeing Spot
As a result of traffic congestion caused by sightseeing
and shuttle buses using park-and-ride parking lot near sightseeing spot,
the waiting time for tourist increases. In this paper, when bus parking
lot near sightseeing spot are overcrowded and full, a model for tourists
getting off a bus on a congested road and transfer to the sightseeing
spot by foot is proposed and verified. A model of getting off a bus on a
congested road when the sightseeing parking lot is overcrowded was
considered by the case analysis. As a result, effectiveness of the model
of getting off a bus on a congested road could be quantitatively
verified for times when parking capacity is exceeded and the bus
parking lot next to the sightseeing spot is overcrowded.
