This article aims to identify the supply chain management practices adopted in the Brazilian electronics sector and verify whether manufacturing competitive priorities of companies in this sector relate to the adoption of such practices. An empirical quantitative research was developed based on an e-mail survey with managers of companies in the electronics sector associated with the Brazilian Association of Electrical and Electronics Industry. Descriptive and multivariate statistical techniques of second generation (Structural Equation Modeling) were used to analyze the data. Main results showed that: (a) the supply chain management practices most deployed are focused on the integration and support of product development activities with customers; and (b) no significant relationships between competitive priorities and supply chain management practices were found.
