We discuss the first pipeline to improve the freight flight duration prediction in Russia. While every freight company use only reference book made by RZD (Russian Railways) based on railroad distances with accuracy measured in days, we argue that one could predict the flight duration with error less than twenty hours while decreasing error to twelve hours for certain type of freight trains.
A great number of economists all around the world research theories of life cycle models. PMBOK and literature on project management have lack of information about the influence of project management on the management of the whole company at different life cycle stages.
