Selected problems of the warehouse operation — in theory and practice

The article describes the basic connections between the warehouse, the user and the environment. An analysis of factors (properties) influencing the functioning of the warehouse was made. It presents selected controllable storage quantities at discrete time points, focusing on the analysis of quantitative measures, including risk used to assess logistic processes and contains a classification of threats affecting the functioning of warehouse management. This section presents random functions with known probability distributions allowing to determine the susceptibility of the warehouse to the occurrence of dangerous situations. The last chapter is the result of empirical research carried out in selected warehouses in the context of the course of warehouse processes under real conditions.
