Study and Assessment of the Synergetic Effect in Integrated Industrial Structures

Abstract :

The economy of developed countries is based on the activities of large integrated structures; entire networks of small and medium-sized business organizations inevitably operate in contact with these structures. The creation of integrated industrial structures (IISs) is, in this context, regarded as one of the possible ways of overcoming the crisis in industrial enterprises due to a more rapid propagation of new technologies within the integrated structure, the reduction of costs, etc., which is made possible through the synergetic effect. In this study, the authors analyzed the nature of the synergistic effect in the IIS, reviewed the existing approaches to assessing it, and offered an analytical expression for quantitatively evaluating the synergetic effect in IIS based on the key provisions of marginal analysis.
