The 1st International Workshop on Innovation for Logistics
WIN-LOG is an initiative of the Center for Innovation for Logistics, Transportation and Transformation recently established under the umbrella of the Calabria District of Logistics (R&D.LOG), in Italy. Therefore the main idea behind this workshop is to enlarge the visibility of this new Center at both national and international level providing the participants with the opportunity to know the activities and research projects and the Center as well as to create synergies and opportunities for new projects and collaborations.
The transport-logistics operations performance evaluation methods were observed in this paper: different approaches were critical analyzed and basic reasons of a current situation were found out. One of such reasons is the absence of analysis methods and the quantitative impact evaluation of indicators on the total logistic costs. Also the author's block diagram showing correlation and influence of different operations such as transportation and products storage in supply chains. Moreover, it was given the description of the performance evaluation method of the indicators-factors impact which is based on the integral method of analysis and it was got according calculating correlations. What is more, it was made the approbation of the created methodological method realization.
We describe vendor managed inventory concept of supply chain management. We propose the idea of using this metodology for the problem of motor fuel distribution from oil depots to filling gas oil stations. The advantages, risks and limitations of the concept introduction for this problem are shown.
In the article author propose approach to client's base generation based on decision tree method. This approach allows taking into account requirements to optimization of customers' selection based on several criteria. Method is illustrated on Logistics Company.
For the first time the new approach to effective modification of traditional criteria of multi-criteria optimization in supply chain management and logistics systems is offered. The approach uses processes of analytical hierarchy. It is illustrated as expansion of toolkit of decision-making accessible to the manager, and opening possibilities of elimination of undesirable phenomena of an inadequate choice in a format of multi-criteria problems in logistics.
The authors propose new approach to self-organization of complex distributed systems in logistics. That approach is based on combination of multi-agent paradigm with constraint satisfaction techniques. The proposed solution expresses major features of Swarm Intelligence approach and replaces traditional stochastic adaptation of the swarm of the autonomous agents by constraint-driven adaptation.
Smoking is a problem, bringing signifi cant social and economic costs to Russiansociety. However, ratifi cation of the World health organization Framework conventionon tobacco control makes it possible to improve Russian legislation accordingto the international standards. So, I describe some measures that should be taken bythe Russian authorities in the nearest future, and I examine their effi ciency. By studyingthe international evidence I analyze the impact of the smoke-free areas, advertisementand sponsorship bans, tax increases, etc. on the prevalence of smoking, cigaretteconsumption and some other indicators. I also investigate the obstacles confrontingthe Russian authorities when they introduce new policy measures and the public attitudetowards these measures. I conclude that there is a number of easy-to-implementanti-smoking activities that need no fi nancial resources but only a political will.
One of the most important indicators of company's success is the increase of its value. The article investigates traditional methods of company's value assessment and the evidence that the application of these methods is incorrect in the new stage of economy. So it is necessary to create a new method of valuation based on the new main sources of company's success that is its intellectual capital.

At present many industries reveal tendency for setting up of vertically integrated companies (VIC) the structure of which unites all technological processes. This tendency proved its efficiency in oil industry where coordination of all successive stages of technological process, namely, oil prospecting and production -oil transportation - oil processing - oil chemistry - oil products and oil chemicals marketing, is necessary. The article considers specific features of introduction of "personnel management" module at enterprises of oil and gas industry.
