The present study aimed to set up a modeling exploratory operation of business clusters through System Dynamics approach, considering factors involved in the process, the fundamentals of competitive performance clusters proposed by Zaccarelli, Telles, Siqueira, Boaventura e Donaire (2008). By structuring, according to the system dynamics methodology, the interaction of systemic effects, responsible for the competitive stage of these inter-organizational arrangements, according to the authors, causal diagrams were developed for each foundation. As main results, mapping the dynamic interactions offered a new theoretical perspective on management and operation and competitiveness of business clusters
