Knowledge - keystone of the modern economy
Veselin Drašković, Radislav Jovović, Borut Jereb, Mimo Drašković, 2013, scientific monograph

Abstract: Over the past 15 years, issues related to knowledge and knowledge management in companies and academic and research spheres have gained on importance. Knowledge is seen as an endless resource, a key element of innovations, competitiveness, economic growth and sustainable development. The present volume examines theoretical and methodological concepts of knowledge management, the knowledge society and the new economy. Drawing on the idea of the knowledge paradigm the growing importance and the role of knowledge in the society, which depend on numerous institutional prerequisites, is emphasized. Moreover, attention is drawn to the need for implementing and spreading the knowledge, as a multidimensional and multidisciplinary notion, efficiently as well as to the need for a critical evaluation of the so-called imaginary knowledge. The authors thus emphasize the need for the criteria of grading and knowledge transfer to be at the highest possible level. The field of knowledge leaves no place for improvisation, imperfection, and manipulation. This is the only ‘recipe’ for a successful future and a way out of any crisis.
Keywords: knowledge, economy, knowledge society, sustainability, new economy, knowledge economy, innovation, social capital, intellectual capital, knowledge management

Possibilities of logistics partner cooperation between the seaports of Bar and Koper
Mimo Drašković, Veselin Drašković, 2016, independent scientific component part or a chapter in a monograph

Abstract: The scientific problem and the subject of research consists of the explanation and analysis of possibilities of regional logistics partner cooperation between Slovenian seaport of Koper and Montenegrin seaport of Bar. This paper elaborates an original idea to attract Chinese investors, shippers, logistics providers, bankers and other business entities in order to expand the port of Bar, modernize its infrastructure, increase the depth of its draft for receiving the largest ships and the creation of intermodal logistics and distribution centers in the closer and wider hinterland . This would allow huge amounts of Chinese goods to be partly shipped to the closer and wider region whereas the rest would be shipped through the port of Koper to Europe. Its hypothesis is that the creation of integrated logistics supply chain would attract a significant portion of China's import of goods to Europe and increase the competitiveness and advantages of the ports of Bar and Koper, through economy of scale, increase of quality of logistics service, reduction of total logistics costs and achievement of higher added value of all port and logistics services in these seaports.

Spreadsheets in function of optimisation of logistics network
Mimo Drašković, Drago Pupavac, 2016, independent scientific component part or a chapter in a monograph

Abstract: This scientific paper discusses how estimated spreadsheets functions in logistics networks optimisation. The suggested working hypothesis for efficacy of estimated spreadsheets in designing logistics networks is proved and a practical example. In this way the given model can be applied to all logistics networks of similar problem capacity. Logistics network model confronting estimated spreadsheets present a real world at a level needed for understanding the problem of optimisation of logistic networks. Applied scientific research for recognition of the set hypothesis is based on analysis and synthesis method, mathematical method and information modelling method.
Keywords: spreadsheets, estimation, logistics network design, optimization

The role of logistics in performance management
Mimo Drašković, 2016, independent scientific component part or a chapter in a monograph

Abstract: Apart from the proven and significant role of logistics in integrating marketing and management systems of a company, the position on the connection between the logistics and institutional (top) level of a business strategy in contemporary literature and business practice is being acknowledged. The mentioned position implies the implementation of performance management. In this way, the earlier opinion and praxis of connecting logistics with operations and provisional functioning in the area concerning a degree of integrations of business functions are being surpassed. The relationship between performance management and logistics can be considered from two aspects: a) role of logistics in enhancement of performance management and b) roles of measuring and analysis in enhancing the logistics performances themselves. This paper explains the mentioned dual relationship through the prism of acquirement of key competences and competitive advantages of an organization through enhancement of certain performances.

Systemic logistics providers
Mimo Drašković, 2016, independent scientific component part or a chapter in a monograph

Abstract: The functioning of a port and shipping system must be perfect in order to provide a competitive advantage and stable position in maritime market. The importance of logistics in business success of port and shipping organizations in contemporary conditions has become crucial. Due to that fact, more and more efforts are put in the designing of integral logistics systems. Thanks to a complex, systemic and networking approach, logistics today is improving the speed and efficiency of operations and significantly influences cost reduction and therewith fulfills one of the basic strategic functions, anticipating necessary key competences of the firm. It is a resource framework for the overcoming of strategic limitations and a method for the enhancement of the competitive position and all marketing and management functions. In addition to that, the integration of partners requires, by rule, a consistent restructuring of the total chain dedicated to the creation of added value, i.e. reengineering of logistics and production business processes. Flexible and small structural units are created, cooperating among each other in a decentralized manner, retaining their key competences and strategic significance for the integral network dominated by a single leading firm as a center of the system, i.e. focus of the supply chain. The paper analyzes the formation of new logistics and marketing paradigm of the beginning of the new century and millennium, anticipating the overcoming of the traditional 3PL three-party logistics concept and formation of contemporary 4PL concept.

Mimo Drašković, Ludmila Malyaretz, Oleksandr Dorokhov, 2016, independent scientific component part or a chapter in a monograph

Abstract: The problem of determining the critical path for the scheduling tasks has been considered. An original technique for practical calculations using the available Solver add-on in Excel has been described. The proposed approach is based on reducing the task to solving the ordinary transportation problem, in particular to the problem of finding the longest path. Examples of solutions with the test input data and corresponding screenshots are given. The practical steps of the user’s action in the process of direct solution in Excel are consistently described. The analysis of the results of the proposed method has been performed and presented. It is established that presented method for calculating the critical path requires minimal efforts from the users, regardless of the dimension of the tasks.

Specific characteristics of the ship and port services as aspects of maritime management
Mimo Drašković, 2016, independent scientific component part or a chapter in a monograph

Abstract: Several ship and port services have been considered, along with their specific characteristics and in the context of their place and role in the entire maritime transport management. A general analysis has been conducted and classification of services of the maritime transport has been done. The specific components and features of the functioning of enterprises of maritime transport services and management of their respective departments and transport stages of sea shipping have been described. A detailed description and substantiation of several levels of management that perform certain specific tasks in the logistics customer service in marine transportation has been given. Some features of the production and service management in seaports have been identified and discussed. A detailed analysis has been provided in terms of modern logistical approaches to customer service of freight trans- port service in general and marine cargo transport services, in particular. The major starting point hypothesis has been confirmed that the quality of services plays a dominant role in the competitive transport environment. The results for a particular seaport and maritime transportation organisations have been determined by the quality of services. In the context of rapid and continuous development of the service sector and its growing contribution to the gross domestic product, the consideration of the ship and maritime transport services is very important, especially for the maritime coastal countries, because they generate extraordinary possibilities for increasing employment, raising competitiveness and the economy of countries and development of their territories. In addition, quality maritime and port services make part of the modern transnational logistic network.
