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.
