Abstract: Leagile is a combination of both lean and agile paradigms; it involves the advantages of both lean as well as agile systems. Through this paper an attempt has been made to study the social implications of this high technology related manufacturing on Indian society. Furthermore, total interpretive structural modelling (TISM) technique has been utilised to identify the driving and dependent social implications of leagile manufacturing. Moreover, TISM technique has been used in finding the mutual relations of these social implications by developing a model. This TISM model may be utilised to identify the key social implications which will be helpful in the area of leagile manufacturing. In the present study, social implication of leagile manufacturing has been identified through literature study and experts review and an TISM model has also been prepared.
