This article examines main influence of the Fourth industrial revolution announced in 2011 and of a lot of new technologies penetrating everyday life on existing processes in supply chain management and on its future development. The article reviews components of intelligent supply chains which are divided into two unequal groups: revolutionary and evolutionary technologies. The former ones are Internet of things, machine learning, 3d printing, blockchain, artificial intelligence and bots -all of which radically change the logic of supply chain work. The second group – evolutionary technologies – is more about successfully developing graphic technologies and functional organization of a workplace. The article mainly focuses on the first group. As a result, the article concludes that all these technologies closely intersect, which forms additional synergic effect of their contact; and that functions and responsibilities of an expert of supply chain management in a company should be thoroughly revised.

In the article the analytical review of companies' controlling system condition investigation made by Russian specialists is pre
sented. The controlling functions systematization is offered, the analysis of current condition, problems and tendencies in companies' logistic controlling development is made.The logistics instruments and logistic controlling algorithm in supply chain management are reviewed.
Logistic controlling is a key function in logistic management. By the results of the research made by company "Shell", the average corporate life is about 20 years. Only some corporations were succeeded to exist for 40-50 years. This analysis allows for the conclusion that big corporations' long standing was provided by the efficient planning and controlling system implementation. It is obvious that controlling implementation is a critical task. Its solution will help to improve logistic systems efficiency.

Meanwhile, the methods which are presented in scientific publications are fragmentary and incomplete, while the existing analytical tools which are used in logistic systems controlling evaluation needs the revision and the development. One of the promising solutions to the described problem is the methodology development which includes relevant models and methods for logistic controlling formation and evaluation, analysis tools and management methods.

The model of continious rolling planning, management decisions execution control and record, which summarizes modern methodological approaches and solutions connected with supply chains and production controlling, is presented in the article. The main factors of controlling system development and the classification of supply chain management performance indicators in the process of controlling system evaluation are described. The algorithm for logistic controlling and management solutions efficiency improvement in logistic systems is presented.
