Questions concerning the economic grounds for ranking scientific-research studies in the field of hydraulic construction
The concentration of efforts expended by scientific collectives for the scientific studies most critical to the national economy (in our case, for complex hydraulic construction) is urgently needed to encourage the development and implementation of methods of quantitative economic evaluation of the ranking of scientific-research studies according to their importance.
In this paper the studies that we conducted and discussed in the area of ranking scientific-research studies for hydraulic construction indicate the expediency of using a combination of two methods for quantitative economic evaluation-reduced costs and expert evaluation.
The indicators, their characteristics, and point values must be selected on the basis of information derived from analysis of data on the actual efficiency of the knowledge-planning-construction-operation system, and also data on the prediction of subsystem and branch development over the next 15–20 years.
The point values of the indicators employed to rank scientific-research studies are then confimed and defined more precisely by the method of expert evaluation with the participation of all interested organizations.
It is necessary to develop and approve standards for the coefficient μ.
