Integrated planning implementation is concerned with some costs, but what about benefits? This article covers the subject of calculation of economic impact of integrated planning. Proposed method suggests to consider interdependence of supply chain KPIs, and start measuring them at the early stages before implementation. This will help to avoid only qualitative estimates, but apply specific quantitative ones as well.
With motorization increasing in cities of the Russian Federation, urban public passenger transport can compete with individual automobile transport primarily due to the high quality of passenger services and operational reliability. One of the crucial indicators of urban public passenger transport service quality is total time expenditures on transportation which includes time expenditures on transfers. The quality of transfer hub operation has not gotten any quantitative assessment in the Russian Federation. In this regard, in order to evaluate the quality of transfer hub operation, the following criterion is proposed: the level of service measured by total time expenditures on transfers, including time expenditures on transportation during transfers and transfer waiting time. A scale for levels of service is proposed. The scale is based on distribution quartiles for transfer duration, obtained from the survey data regarding transfer hubs in Irkutsk and Vienna.
The paper examines the structure, governance, and balance sheets of state-controlled banks in Russia, which accounted for over 55 percent of the total assets in the country's banking system in early 2012. The author offers a credible estimate of the size of the country's state banking sector by including banks that are indirectly owned by public organizations. Contrary to some predictions based on the theoretical literature on economic transition, he explains the relatively high profitability and efficiency of Russian state-controlled banks by pointing to their competitive position in such functions as acquisition and disposal of assets on behalf of the government. Also suggested in the paper is a different way of looking at market concentration in Russia (by consolidating the market shares of core state-controlled banks), which produces a picture of a more concentrated market than officially reported. Lastly, one of the author's interesting conclusions is that China provides a better benchmark than the formerly centrally planned economies of Central and Eastern Europe by which to assess the viability of state ownership of banks in Russia and to evaluate the country's banking sector.
