Abstract Both scientific journals and academic books present many warehouse designing methods. This diversity shows differences in approach to designing process. This is a consequence of the fact that methods are results of authors' different points of view. A critical review of the literature proves that most of the proposed designing methods are fragmentary and their designing steps are not put in a logical order. Finally some methods seem to be functional specification rather than designing methods. Therefore it is highly desirable to achieve systematisation of existing methods, to add new facets and aspects of warehouse designing and consequently try to develop a unified method. The literature review of the problem led to a critical review of the warehouse designing methods. It is precisely described in the paper. The critical review resulted in answering the question whether to develop the new method or not.
