Agility is one of the coming challenges to the supply chain management companies. This paper presents a model to evaluate agility for supply chain management companies and answers the question that how agile a supply chain management company is. It shows a complete set of items in evaluating agility in SCM companies.The model surveys agility in responsiveness with indexes such as strategic planning, sensitivity to change and virtual enterprise; flexibility with indexes such as market flexibility, logistics flexibility,operations system flexibility and supply flexibility;competency with indexes such as integrative mechanism, shared culture, joint decision making, trust and communication; and finally quickness with indexes such as speed of new product introduction,delivery time and speed in operation.The results of S.G.S Co. show that it is in the middle range of agility. It also identifies weak factors within the organization which by improving them, the company can improve its agility index. Evaluation is done in fuzzy logic.
