Abstract: Resilience is the ability to sustain and evolve in uncertainty and potential disruptions. The building of the resilient supply chain is a long term continuous process that involves the identification and implementation of factors responsible for nurturing the resilience ability. In this research work, we identify the resilient supply chain factors and analyse it through a structural modelling approach. The prominence-causal diagram and Matrice d'Impacts croises-multiplication applique and classment (MICMAC) analysis reveal that factors belong to two broad categories, i.e., influential and influenced groups. Further, the hierarchical structure suggests that 'developing the risk management culture' in the supply chain is the most crucial factor for a resilient supply chain. This research work will help the academicians and decision-makers to understand the significant factors of a resilient supply chain and help the managers in the allocation of the available resources suitably to improve specific resilience dimensions or capability.
