    Explain types of problems that may occur with deliveries and stock items
    Imagine you were running a shop. If you're ever done supermarket home delivery (or seen your parents do it) or been to a shop you have experience there you can draw on. What kind of problems could occur - you're trying to get the items you want so that you can use them for the specific purpose (selling them to customers to make a profit).

    So probably the most obvious one is that the warehouse could be out of stock. You must have been to a supermarket and they've said they've run out of something, so must have seen this happen.

    You might find this video helpful, as it shows you inside a depot





    So you can see all the machines they have - maybe something could break down. Maybe they misplace one of the keys. If you watch it through slowly, and think of all the things that could go wrong with each stage, you'll get loads of possible answers!
