Agility mainly reflects in the un-predictability of the supply chain, as well as its fast response to the changing supply environment.Agent-based computing is growing to a focus in the field of Artificial Intelligence, and general computer science. Independent Agent and Multi-agent System provide a new way of analyzing, designing, and implementing complex systems. Multi-agent has such characteristics as parellel , adaptability, etc. Multi-Agent System is composed of Independent Agent. By using the Multi-agent System theory, could archieve effective coordination among allied enterprise, stregthen cooperation and information transaction of each function unit in Agile Supply Chain. Therefore more and more Multi-agent System apply in Agile Supply Chain management.This paper applys Multi-agent theory and technology into Agile Supply Chain management system, the study emphasizes on the coordination system of Multi-agent Supply Chain management system and its planning and design. Firstly, introduced supply chain, supply chain management, Agile Supply Chain, Agile Supply Chain management system, and Agent, Multi-agent theory, its technology characteristic, Multi-agent communication and cooperation.
