                         the main instruments of analysis, identification, classification 
                         and management of entities in the complex and conflicting 
                         corporate environment. In a similar way, System Dynamics (SD) 
                         methodology has been used as an instrument for modeling and 
                         simulating the dynamics of complex systems in several areas of 
                         knowledge, such as engineering, management, environmental 
                         research, health, etc. The main objective of this work is to study 
                         the potential of combining these two approaches into a new 
                         methodology for modeling, analysis and simulation of 
                         organizational complex systems that could aid in the 
                         decision-making process. Motivated by social, technological, 
                         political and economic challenges observed in the Brazilian Space 
                         Program (PEB), the authors use it as a case study for the 
                         application of that new methodology. This preliminary study 
                         identifies possible cells and molecules of the functional 
                         structure of PEB, their interfaces and interactions. It is hoped 
                         that the present work would be helpful for later developments in 
                         PEBs dynamic modeling and planning.",
