Abstract: The article examines the major control mechanisms presented in the active systems theory. This involves
open control mechanisms, or У fair playФ (non-manipulative mechanisms) that stimulate providing true information,
coordinated mechanisms that stimulate the implementations of plans and programs, cost-conscious mechanisms that
ensure lower spending and prices even for monopolies, and other mechanisms (competition-based, multichannel,
reversed priorities). The active systems theory emerged in 1969. An active system is a model of a person, a group, an
organization that takes into account the presence of its own interest and the capacity for presenting untrue information
(data manipulation), the capacity for not executing plans, programs and obligations. The methodology of this
study includes the systemic, structural and functional approaches, the methods of induction, deduction, analysis,
synthesis and modeling. The main goal of the active systems theory is to design efficient mechanisms for controlling
and managing organization structures. Presently, over thirty of such control mechanisms were introduced (dubbed
Уsmart control mechanismsФ). The article presents the results of efficiency analysis of practical applications of said
control mechanisms in economy: distribution of water, optimal coordinated planning in organizations, Уoperator
active advisorsФ in black metallurgy, cost-conscious tax systems in scientific organizations. The author offers a brief
survey of the current state of active systems theory and core publications.
