Oleh Kuzmin, Yevhen Tsikalo, Kateryna Doroshkevych, Nataliya Kolinko


Introduction. Study of the well-founded implementation of integration in the management of enterprises and giving it the features of a system, which is important for the development of economic processes, increasing the effectiveness of management decision making at the enterprise. A comprehensive study of phenomena related to the formation of integral entities from elements, separately operating units, etc. should be provided. This involves the study of trends and regularities in the course of economic processes, methods of implementation of system integration actions, influencing factors that are implemented in the analysis process. As you know, the results of the analysis are used for the purpose of prospective planning of the activities of the objects, forecasting their condition, forming recommendations for increasing the effectiveness of the activity and its profitability. At the same time, the effectiveness of the received recommendations depends on the setting of the system integration research process, scientific methods, methodological models, which is reflected in the methodological provisions of the analysis.

Purpose. The article should summarize the methodological provisions on the analysis of integration processes in the management of enterprises in order to improve the level of management decision making at the enterprise.

Method (methodology). To achieve the goals, the article uses theoretical generalization, systematization, methods of analysis, synthesis, etc. This ensured the study of literary sources on the problem, and the analysis of basic principles. On the basis of these principles the methodological provisions for the analysis of the integration processes of enterprises were formed.

Results. The article has developed methodological provisions containing: a complex of spheres of analysis of integration systems of business entities (levels of integration, as well as objects of integration of the entity's management system; target orientation of integration management systems of the enterprise; study of means of acquisition of integration features of the enterprise management system; stages of the integration process; study of the architecture used for the implementation of the integrated corporate system); methods and techniques corresponding to them (multi-criteria analysis, game-simulator in the environment of ERP-business systems, scenario method, balance method, substitutions, AHP-method by T. Saati, etc.); factors that determine effective self-organization and systemic integration in enterprise management (standardization and unification, systematicity, modeling, protection of data and intellectual property rights, formation of sustainable relationships between the processes of integration and self-organization, feedback).
