An article presents identification methodologies and estimation of factors which influence a logistic process safety in a network context through the use of a network thinking methodology. A proposed version of a network thinking methodology for the use of a safety analysis of logistic processes realisation, unlike an originalProbst and Urlich concept, only uses its modified stages. A significant element which differentiates a solution presented by the authors is the use of one of grey systems theory’s methods so called Grey Relational Analysis in order to quantitatively formulate a common experts’ opinion concerning an impact mutual force of identified factors. Knowledge of a correlation force between factors is a basis to classifying factors into groups which are used for taking appropriate and optimal managing actions.
A solution presented in the article will be tested with reference to real data for a buying decision process in a company of a chemical branch using a computer support that simplifies computation processes.
