Abstract: Supply chain resilience (SCRes) as the capability of being responsive to unplanned changes and disruptions has become a key to remain competitive in today's dynamic business environment. The purpose of this paper is to develop an integrated framework for identifying and evaluating the enabling factors of SCRes. An extensive literature review is conducted to construct a comprehensive set of SCRes enablers and an integrated interpretive structural modelling and fuzzy analytic network process (ISM-FANP) methodology is proposed to analyse the identified factors. The proposed framework provides a unified, structured view of the SCRes enablers as well as their inter-relationships and identifies the most influential prerequisites that contribute to achieving a more resilient supply chain. The results of applying the proposed framework shed light on the key strategies that should be adopted by supply chain managers to enhance SCRes performance and maintain supply chain operations under unexpected disturbances.

Keywords: supply chain resilience; SCRes; enablers; interpretive structural modelling; ISM; fuzzy analytical network process; FANP; inter-relationships; relative importance.
