Importance Intensification of global socio-political and economic risks inherent in Russian basic industries development show the importance of an increase in innovative activity of branches having a potential of import substitution, like modern instrument engineering. The organization of information system of project management that considers the specifics of modern enterprises and meets the requirements of dynamically developing markets, enables to make a quantum leap in development and gain a long-term competitive edge. Objectives The aim is to develop recommendations to increase the efficiency of projects realized at instrument-making enterprises by means of organizing the information system of project management. Methods Using a multi-stage cost-functional analysis, we evaluate the most relevant software products for project management at instrument-making enterprises. Results We describe the general scheme of implementing projects of design and technological preparation of production, using information systems of project management, reveal and rank basic requirements to software products for instrument- making enterprises, analyze the most popular software products in the Russian software market in terms of their applicability at these enterprise from the perspective of users of software products. Conclusions Formation of the corporate system of project management, qualitative selection of software products for instrument-making enterprises, considering the strategy of development and competent gradual implementation help increase the efficiency of decisions in particular, and innovative activity of instrument-making domestic enterprises in general.
