Abstract

This paper proposes a composite index, called the 'AR index', to assess the agility and resilience of automotive companies and their respective supply chains. As a first step, a model to support the AR index is developed. Next, an AR index for the automotive supply chain is suggested using a set of relevant agile and resilient supply chain practices. The Delphi technique was used to obtain a series of weights for those practices. Finally, a case study approach is used to illustrate the application of the AR index. This study represents an original approach that suggests a unique composite indicator for the agile and resilient paradigms in the context of automotive supply chains.
