Manipulation processes represent an important part of the material management in a company. These processes run inside a company and represent an integrated chain of material flow. The current situation regarding the material manipulation is evaluated using the manipulation indicators which may serve as the basis for manipulation system rationalisation designs. The present case study is focused on the determination of an appropriate number of forklift trucks in a given operation and consists of three sections. The introductory section deals with the evaluation of forklift activities while applying the selected analysis and the selected indicators. Analysis results subsequently served as a basis for the calculation. The calculated number of trucks must be properly verified; the verification should be focused on whether the given number of forklifts is actually sufficient for the performance of the current activities. The activities were verified while applying the simulation. A simulation model was created using the Technomatix Plan Simulation software.
