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.
