Abstract


The University-Industry Relationship presents itself as an important factor for the socio-economic development, whether municipal, regional or national. So the goal of this article is to propose an instrument for the diagnosis of research opportunities in Production Engineering in the commercial sector at the Brazilian city of Itabira (MG). The research method was the theoretic-conceptual, through a bibliometrics analysis, obtained on the basis of Web of Science. Articles were assessed from knowledge areas required by the Brazilian Association of Production Engineering (ABEPRO) and published in 2014 and 2015. The diagnostic instrument was drawn up from a bibliometrics analysis and validated by experts’ opinion, professors from Federal University of Itajubá (UNIFEI). A pilot test has also been accomplished with four companies, members of an Association of Itabira. As the main result, the test has indicated that the priority area for research is the Economic Engineering in the commercial sector of Itabira.
