Based on the literature review, field study and industry study a multi-level model which constitute the enablers of agile supply chain, the factors which are identified as the sources of driving force of these enablers has been developed. This model also identifies the business performance indicators (BPIs) of a manufacturing system. The objective of this paper is to identify the most important enablers of agile supply chain and the driving forces behind these enablers in an organisational system.
