The "Economic Strategies" journal
Currently, humanity is concerned about two major issues: national security and economic development. At the same time environmental threat seems more distant and therefore less dangerous. In solving the problem of economic development a priority role remains with the market economy. The article notes the existence of a fundamental difference in the target objectives of business and environment: development of market economy and business does not meet the requirements of efficient nature management and environment and causes further environmental degradation. In this regard, there is a concern — if the society continues to develop only on the principles of market economy, it itself will speed up the arrival of a global environmental catastrophe.
The article analyzes the impact of forecasting and planning on management system effectiveness at various levels: from enterprises to federal executive authorities.
The article presents philosophical and methodological analysis of the innovative development basic models, taking into account the specificity of these models the article evaluates individual projects and strategic documents defining the current state of Russia’s innovative development, it discusses perspective directions of improving the innovative development mechanisms.
Professor Emeritus of the University of Erlangen, having a PhD from the University of Granfild and the Moscow Energy Institute, member of the VDI-GEU Advisory Board, winner of the “Global Energy” 2005 prize, Klaus Riedle is a world leading specialist in the field of gas turbine power. Under his guidance were designed the latest generations of Siemens high-performance gas turbines.
Scientific activities of Klaus Riedle:
- the world’s leading specialist in the field of gas turbine power;
- participated in projects for developing “Westinghouse” systems W 501FD and W 501G, based on which in 1999 at the power plant in Florida (USA) the world’s largest 60 Hz 501G machine was launched;
- has developed the latest generations of Siemens high-performance gas turbines;
- introduced new materials and technologies into production, including single-crystal superalloys for the first rows of blades, cooling systems with a film layer and thermal insulation coatings for guiding blades and rotor blades of power gas turbines;
- created improved high-temperature, high power gas turbines of 8000H series
Creating a remote monitoring system for dangerous or potentially dangerous objects in order to provide security will become a priority for companies and research institutions in the next few years. Rostekhnadzor is carrying out activities to create a system of remote monitoring of technological processes in dangerous production facilities with the use of modern telemetric facilities, information and communication technologies. In his interview with the chief editor of the “Economic strategies” magazine Alexander Ageev the State Secretary – Deputy Head of Rostekhnadzor Alexander Rybas told about the possibilities of not only qualitatively predict accidents, but also to make recommendations with regard to changing operational risks, about experts certification in the field of industrial safety.
The article deals with intellectual informationanalytical technology implemented in the processes of public procurement and in the systems of fiscal support to the economy (subsidies, state guarantees, budget investments) and based on the possibilities of semantic analysis of electronic content while placing and executing the state order and of applying a collective intelligence. The analysis includes a comparison of individual data of companies participating in cooperation while executing state contracts through electronic trading platforms (ETP), with dynamics of funds movement. At that, the mechanism of knowledge management, based on the retrospective of similar state contracts implementation and network expertise, is applied. The analysis highlights indicators characterizing the chain of links in respect of funds movement, financial audit and monitoring are carried out. Analytical services are integrated with monitoring services, implemented by commercial banks, which carry out the contract support, and with the Federal Financial Monitoring Service. Considered intelligent technology is offered as an integral part of risk reduction technologies related to improper and inefficient use of budget funds, especially in the sphere of the state defense order.
Country of the Rising Sun has always been at the forefront of high technology. Prior to the accident at “Fukushima-1” nuclear power accounted for about 30% in the overall structure of the Japanese energy consumption. After the disaster the Japanese tried to compensate the lack of nuclear power with the increase in mineral resources imports and with generating own energy by renewable energy resources. Oil imports in the first years after the accident were growing. But such a replacement is very expensive for Japan’s budget, as rejection of peaceful atom has led to record trade deficit figures. Restarting the nuclear program in Japan after the events at “Fukushima-1” was a rather complicated and delicate matter. On the one hand, psychological aspect did not allow to restart using peaceful nuclear energy, because the memory was still keeping fresh fears after the accident. However, from an economic point of view NPP restart was only a matter of time. This adds additional strength to energy companies in improving their strategies. In the basis of nearly a century-long success of Mitsubishi Electric there is a special, time-tested and experience-tested company’s philosophy. Mitsubishi Electric proclaims seven basic principles of its activity: trust, quality, technology, social responsibility, flexibility, environmental protection and growth. Corporate motto of Mitsubishi Electric “Changes for the better” affirms the company’s commitment to continuous improvement in pursuit of the highest standards. This slogan promises to create a “better tomorrow” for each of the clients. In his exclusive interview with Alexander Ageev Katsuya Furuta, Mitsubishi Electric Group Vice President Nuclear Energy, Advanced Magnetic & Medical Systems Marketing Division, Energy & Industrial Systems Group, dwells on the level of the world’s trust in the company’s products, the main features of Japanese management, on the differences in doing business in our country, on promotion of Japanese brands in the Russian market and, of course, on Russian-Japanese relations.
