Abstract—From the beginning of the 21th century many researchers and practitioners have been finding and implementing various concepts in organizations for facing the emerging competition. Agile Supply Chain Management (ASCM) is one of the paradigms which facilitate the organization to satisfy customer need through quick response. In this paper, we have carried out a case study in an automobile horn manufacturing company for infusing agility in the vibrosonic horn’s supply chain. The current agility level has been measured and the areas of improvement have been demarcated. We have chosen two models which have been already proposed by two researches in this field for evaluating the agility level. Further we have proposed ideas for increasing current agility level
