A convenience store is considering changing its layout to encourage impulse buy-ing. The triangular flow matrix below gives the measure of association between different product groups ( e. g., beer, milk, magazines). A plus sign ( 1 ) indicates a high association, such as between beer and peanuts; a minus sign ( 2 ) indicates a repulsion, such as between beer and milk; and a zero ( 0) indicates no association.
Using the initial layout below, perform an operations sequence analysis to deter-mine a layout that will encourage impulse buying by placing high- association prod-uct groups close to one another.
