Executed work was devoted to study the problems of supply chain management approach in large projects of the Russian nuclear industry.The purpose of this dissertation is to develop a new methodology for raising the efficiency of project management in the nuclear industry that would combine project management and supply chain management approaches.To fulfill the objectives planned to perform the following tasks:1. Determination of the specific of managing large projects and supply chain in the nuclear industry.2. Identification of problems in the supply chain management in a large project and their causes.3. Defining efficiency criteria of project management and supply chain management in the nuclear industry.4. Reviewing of the existing project management system in the nuclear industry.5. Collecting and analyzing of the project information.6. Identification of benefits from the organization of the management approach, which brings together project management and supply chain management in large projects.To develop a methodological framework for supply chain management approach in large projects for the Russian nuclear industry has been used a comprehensive method of research, including both theoretical and empirical methods.1. In the theoretical part:Analysis of the theoretical research and empirical data based on Russian and foreign scientific publications.2. In the practical part:Collection, systematization and analysis of the information needed to verify hypothesis, through questionnaires and interviews with the study of the organization.On the basis of studies have been made the following conclusions and recommendations:1. Major projects of the nuclear industry have a number of features that must be considered for successful implementation of projects. One of the most significant features is the formation of the supply chain project for its implementation.2. As practice shows, the implementation of major projects still gives the priority to traditional principles of management. The analysis shows the need of developing cooperation with all the firms included in the supply chain of the project.3. The implementation of the project management approach within one company would not solve the problems with the managing of the projects. The analysis shows that developing of the cooperation between all firms of supply chain in project could make the projects more efficient.4. The author has developed a model of inter-firm cooperation, including five blocks: training; organization of project teams; project planning using Network Schedules; risk management and implementation of an information system.5. Implementation of this model will create the prerequisites for achieving performance of the projects.
