The long-term Sustainable Development Strategy Ukraine-2020 has been developed for the period up to 2020 and also the approved Concept of the National Targeted Economic Program for Industrial Development for the period up to 2020 (order of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine from 17.07.2013. N 603-р)  are focused on successfully meeting the challenge of accelerating economic growth and moving to an innovative development model.

Therefore, the role and importance of industry and its main component – mechanical engineering, are growing. Mechanical engineering is a source of economic growth that identifies opportunities and prospects for innovative development based on high-tech technologies.

At the same time, the issues related to the application of enterprise capacity management tools, including the lack of quality systems of assessment of capacity utilization, are not sufficiently covered. It generally diminishes its effectiveness and ability to obtain the effect and ensure its development of the enterprise in modern conditions.

Mechanical engineering is one of the most complex and largest industries of Ukraine. Sectoral enterprises employ more than a third of the country’s industrial personnel. Mechanical engineering is the basis of technological and technological progress of the country. In Ukraine, multidisciplinary mechanical engineering is developed, whose enterprises form a complex interconnected machine-building complex.

Assessment of the potential of the company should be carried out in the form of a comprehensive, step-by-step and elemental research.

With a comprehensive form of capacity assessment, all potential components that are integrated into a single indicator are investigated. The main methods of indicators’ integration – expert or rating.

In a step-by-step assessment, it focuses on the main criteria that determine an enterprise’s ability to meet its core objectives. In this case, the problem boils down to detailing the main criteria that provide a comprehensive assessment.

The mechanism for evaluating the use of machine-building potential should be part of the overall strategy for increasing the efficiency of production activity and take into account the principles of formation of this system at the enterprise.
