Abstract: This work intends to contribute to the planning guidelines in the field of Supply Chain Management (SCM). Thus, it develops a multi-model proposal supported by the definition of a highly complex spectrum of knowledge that considers a sequence of systematic procedures in the following phases – Phase 1: modelling the needs of information in SCM and Phase 2: determination of the critical knowledge in SCM. Several support instruments were used in the modelling elaboration in order to reduce subjectivity in the results: psychometric scales – Thurstone's law of comparative judgement, multi-criteria compromise programming, Electre III and Promethee II, artificial neural networking and neurofuzzy networks. The results produced are satisfactory, validating the proposed procedure for SCM.
