Network interactions as a factor in the formation of the value of modern business

DOI: 10.33917/mic-6.107.2022.32-42

The article analyzes network interactions as a factor in the formation of business value in the digital economy. In the course of the study, the author analyzes the advantages and features of network interactions within platform business models and business ecosystems. The author comes to the following conclusions. Network interactions between platform participants produce network effects. Taking advantage of network effects is changing the way business value is created. Data is becoming the main asset that ensures the growth of the capitalization of digital companies. Links of the value chain are transformed into modules and embedded in networks. Under the influence of digital technologies, business value is created at all levels of the economic system (including the nanolevel), companies are turning from static hierarchical structures into dynamic networks of interconnected players, and the role of company management in creating business value is changing.

Methods for building organizational management structures in defense industries

DOI: 10.33917/mic-6.107.2022.19-31

The purpose of this scientific article is to prepare proposals for the further development of the management of enterprises and organizations of the domestic defense industry. The relevance of the topic is due to the fact that at present the current organizational structure for managing them has a number of significant drawbacks, the main of which (especially with a significant expansion of the range of products) are a significant decrease in the system’s maneuverability and an increase in its response time to changes in external conditions. Therefore, it is necessary to develop new methodological approaches to eliminate these shortcomings. The paper considers the following issues: 1) as a result of the analysis of integration processes in the Russian defense industry, the main shortcomings and unresolved problems were identified; 2) the fundamental conditions for the development of an organizational structure for managing a business entity are determined; 3) requirements for its elements are formulated; 4) proposed and substantiated on their basis a typical organizational structure for managing a large production facility – a corporation.

Theoretical concepts and methodological approaches to understanding production theory and cost analysis in the context of digitalization in microeconomics

DOI: 10.33917/mic-5.106.2022.62-68

The article examines the effectiveness of using digital doubles in the main sectors of the Russian economy. It is shown how the use of digital doubles affects the structure of production costs. The authors of the article attempt to argue the fact that the use of digital doubles and digital databases will make exponential economic growth possible. This trend is explained by the consequence of the increase in the performance of digital doubles, due to the action of Gordon Moore’s law of technological progress (the first law of 1965) and Arthur Rock’s law (Moore’s second law of 1998). In this regard, the authors adopt a new approach to substantiating the specific manifestation of the law of diminishing returns. It is concluded that in the short term, the simultaneous use of advanced digital technologies and a digital analogue of live labor pushes the boundaries of the law of diminishing returns, ensuring an increase in returns from the scale of production at a new round of microeconomic development.

Benchmarking as a continuous process of quality management and investment and innovation activities of Severstal Corporation PJSC

DOI: 10.33917/mic-5.106.2022.50-61

This article discusses benchmarking as a continuous process of quality management and investment and innovation activities on the example of PJSC Severstal Corporation.

The definition of the concept of «benchmarking» is given, its purpose, tasks, stages of implementation are shown. A comparison of Russian and foreign approaches in benchmarking is presented.

The results of benchmarking are shown, which identified shortcomings and gave directions for improving the efficiency of PJSC Severstal. Companies need to bet more on R&D and get better results from it. In recent years, against the background of the pandemic and economic sanctions, PJSC Severstal faced a lack of funds for the modernization and reconstruction of production facilities, with a mismatch with the structure of supply and demand.

The authors propose to reduce costs, develop the metal products market and introduce innovative technologies.

Analysis of consumer perception in the space of image-forming factors. Part 2: Positions in comparison with competitors

DOI: 10.33917/mic-5.106.2022.26-49

This study considers the analytical principles of market object perception (goods, trademarks, firms) by consumer in the image-forming space, with an emphasis on the correctness of the application of methods and interpretation of results (in terms of comparing perceived positions with competitors’ positions against the consumer ideals). The proposed approach to analysis is based on the identification of factors that determine market processes and the construction of images of real goods / brands / firms in the perception of representatives of the target group. The issues of product / brand / company promotion are discussed based on the analysis of consumer perception. The presented approach is applied to solve some practical problems, such as identifying factors of perception of goods / brands / firms, building their images in the space of consumer attitudes, analyzing the configuration of images in comparison with the competitors and ideals, developing a strategy and essential details of promotion.
