BALAJI, M; VEL MURUGAN, V  y  ARUN KUMAR, N.R. Creating agile supply chains by tads. Lat. Am. appl. res. [online]. 2014, vol.44, n.4, pp.345-350. ISSN 0327-0793.

Global markets are now becoming volatile in most industries and the importance of their abilities to adapt to rapid and unexpected changes have surfaced. Modern organizations have to respond quickly to their customers' dynamic demands without compromising on quality, productivity and cost. Achieving agility lies in de-signing agile friendly processes and thus firms need to concentrate on their supply chains and its enablers in the attempt of redressing themselves as responsive supply chains. To evaluate and improve the levels of supply chain agility, a model called Total Agile Design System (TADS) is proposed. TADS as a methodology identifies supply chain enablers and prioritize them in order to achieve supply chain agility. In this scoring model, agility index before and after implementation of TADS are measured and discussed. The results validate the proposed model and lend evidence to the current thinking of impinging on agile concepts in traditional supply chains for competitive advantage and survival.

Palabras clave : Responsive Supply Chains; TADS; Agility Index; Competitive Advantage.
