Process innovations: measurement and control

The article is dedicated to the problem of development of innovative activity’s measurement. There is shown the inadequacy of the index of specific weight of innovative products for measurement of innovative activity’s efficiency in extractive industries for which process innovations are common. There was suggested the index of specific weight of process innovations each of extractive and manufacturing industries. The measurement of process innovations and controlling of them is related to the need of renewal of technological basis of production and competitive recovery of output products

Keywords: measurement, innovative activity, mining and manufacturing, product and process innovations, the need of control
