Abstract The Authors' research has concentrated on the modelling and parametrization of procurement processes – order/ delivery processes. The methods employed in the research were: modelling approach towards logistics systems and processes as well iGrafx software. The result of the works is the Authors' own project composed of 10 elements, which allows for conducting a multi-criteria analysis of procurement and transportation processes. This paper describes the simulation of procurement according to economic order quantity method. Business processes today are volatile, complex and with many interdependencies; a tendency to reduce the risk of failure is prevalent. Computer simulation as a tool for analysing and predicting future enables the testing of various solution variants over a short period of time – at no capital investment cost or without taking unnecessary risk. The result of the research has a practical application in both manufacturing and trading companies.
