The aim of this study was to demonstrate that the general approach and principles of organization and management of an industrial enterprise - based on the integration of its functions are universally valid and that it is possible to establish a standardized system of criteria - parameters (performances) of the process, which in required and sufficient measure reflect the effectiveness of the overall success of the industrial enterprise. On this basis a model of measuring KPIs in the industrial enterprises is developed or the system of parameters of process quality in industrial enterprises which have obtained the conditions for the development of management models for their supervision (monitoring) by the management.
