The present article is devoted to machinery-building companies’ logistic systems evaluation. The survey reveals the peculiarities of Ukrainian enterprises development and efficiency based on their life cycle and logistic system state research. This study presents a new approach to company’s supply chain management evaluation as a core part of enterprise’s life. Authors’ methodical background states for strategic, tactical and operational levels of management. The logistic system state (LSS) was studied by three denominations: company’s logistic flow at the operational level of management, logistic functions as a tactics efficiency evaluation measurement and return on logistics investments (ROLI) as a criterion of enterprise strategic actions. The conducted survey shows the enterprise’s abilities to adapt to external changes at every stage of LSS.
