In this position paper, we describe a first approach to develop a framework for a management dashboard in a retail scenario. This dashboard aims at visualizing a real supermarket in an interactive three-dimensional model in such a way that changes in the real world are immediately reflected in the virtual world and information from the virtual world can be transferred to the real one. This approach is referred to as dual reality. In addition to the visualization of the supermarket environment, we describe the idea of adding simulators and business intelligence services to the dashboard. This paper also illustrates some results from a prototypical implementation of different initial components, such as a visualization component using XML3D and an agent-based communication channel to simulate sensors. Violations of predefined policies detected by the agent component can be illustrated in the visualization component.
