Shichkov A. N., Borisov A. A., Kremlyova N. A. Thermodynamics Laws in Engineering Business

Engineering business is a fundament of an economy environment ensuring life activity of peoples. In its turn the efficiency of an economy environment is determined by the mathematic models using engineering business in operations management. The article is devoted to create of the mathematical model of an engineering business based on the mathematical analogy by first and second thermodynamics laws. In this case the mathematical model of the converting manufacturing capital in a manufacturing-technological system (MTS) into a monetary capital in the form sold products is obtained in the form parametrical equation. Integrated set consists of following unit vectors of the monetary flows: sales value vector, technological costs vector, manufacturing capital vector, main funds vector and net income vector. Research of converting level (relation of sales value to manufacturing capital) shown the mathematical model is formed by analogical to thermodynamics laws gave the ability to create the graphical interpretation of a converting operation cycle and unite in a single complex the tools of the operations management. In its turn the integrated set of the operations management tools include: formation of the business aims strategy, designing MTS, production planning and management accounting in the converting operation cycle and an improvement of business by continues implementing productive, technological and allocation innovations. Subsequent studies are dedicated to develop of the theory and practice each tools of the operations management.
