The purpose of the chapter is to substantiate theoretical and methodological prerequisites for the introduction of a systematic approach to the development of the enterprise and chain management system in business, the components of which are interrelated goals, objectives, principles, approaches, methods and functions. Methods of classification, synthesis, analysis, induction and deduction are chosen as research methods, and binary matrices which are formed on basis of classification attributes of objects and its dichotomies used as a research tool. The chapter develops the structure of the enterprise and chain management system in business; substantiates the content of goals, objectives, principles, approaches, methods and functions of enterprise and chain management in business; proposes the system of codes of components of system of this type; creates prerequisites for the formation of the integrated concept of chain management in statics and dynamics. The implementation of obtained results will reduce the likelihood of contradictions in chains by coordinating the content of management systems of its links, create prerequisites for elimination the lost profits of chains of different type, reducing the time and cost of preparing and implementing management decisions, responding in the timely manner to unique demands of end consumers. The originality of the research is confirmed by the substantiation of choice and use of actual qualitative attributes of management objects and its dichotomies, which allow to obtain 2ˣ variants of these objects and assign its binary codes processed using computer software for management activities.
