Abstract

This paper presents the steps of a developing research of a model to evaluate the integration level of logistics in supply chains that have the family farming producers as first suppliers. Among the objectives of the paper, there are the software description and its applications. Those chains have some particularities in the production and distribution planning of their products and, for this reason, they need the adaptation of some concepts of logistics to their context in order to be evaluated and then improved. Firstly it is presented a review on concepts of logistics and also on the peculiarities in familiar production in order to make possible a discussion on the evaluation of logistics performance in organizations of familiar producers. The steps followed in the software Agrolog modeling are detailed and the premises for its application are done. The software model proposed and its principles of functioning are presented, as well as the results of the qualitative evaluation obtained during the model validation in one cooperative of family farming producers. Finally, limitations and perspectives related to the development and application of the software Agrolog are discussed.
