Abstract: Supply chain management and agility are combined sources of competitiveness in the business world. There existed a need to apply axiomatic design principles of agility in supply chains. In this context, this paper reports an axiomatic model of agile system in supply chains design using process variables. A hierarchical structure has been developed to model the design process of agility in supply chains composed of functional requirements, design parameters, process variables. In the theory of axiomatic design, process variables are created by mapping the design parameters in the process domain. This article serves as an efficient guideline for the design process to clarify the tools, methods and resources of designing agility system in supply chains of an Indian relays manufacturing organisation.
