What is?

Simulator for the simulation of agribusiness companies. The simulated companies are small manufactors or cooperatives of rural producers. They buy agricultural raw materials from farmers or middlemen and turn them into consumer products.

The simulator reproduces the conditions of operation of this process of transformation and commercialization, encompassing the areas of production, sales, financial and human resources. During the simulation the participants may encounter typical agribusiness situations.

How it works?

For each simulated period, it is necessary to plan the machines, purchase agricultural raw materials and packaging, marketing policy, as well as define the number of employees needed, which may involve hiring, layoffs or overtime. The employees responsible for the transformation of agricultural raw material into consumer products have their productivity modified by factors such as training, wage level, among others.

The demand for products takes into account factors such as price, payment term, advertising and agribusiness growth. The agricultural product is perishable, therefore, its producers must seek a balance between production and sale so that there is no loss of products.

The financial management includes loans, financing, investment of funds and factoring.
