Flexibility ensures effective implementation of the Industrialised Building System (IBS) supply chain with the demand and changing markets. The main purpose of this research is to identify and also analyze the challenging factors and constraints upon the flexible practises of the IBS supply chain. Thus, this research measures the importance of connection and coordination among the related parties in the supply chain cycle. Besides, the factors on misconception and also lack of awareness about the supply chain practises are also being studied along with the analysis of the affecting challenging factors and constraints upon the flexible implementation of IBS supply chain. Furthermore, thorough analysis is made regarding the challenging factors and other supply chain flexibility that prevent the continuity and development of the Industrialised Building System (IBS) in Malaysia. Issues and problems in IBS supply chain flexibility arise due to the flaws in the facility management (that are capital funding and transportation), information problems, resource and inventory, and also communication and integration within the building team itself. It creates future problems such as repetitive works, work delays, costs increment, poor communications, standardizations and wastage. The research uses both empirical analyses of quantitative and qualitative orientations. About 70 developers and contractors are taken as respondents for this research. A few statistical techniques are used in the data analysis, which are reliability test, descriptive,frequency, and also several other techniques. The capability of organization is a significant factor to ensure the effectiveness of the implementation of IBS practises. Independent variable holds influence (27.7%) on the IBS system. However, the capability of the organization is the most significant factor on the IBS system with b=0.054, t=0.331, p<0.01. Based on the analysis outcomes, the developers only choose IBS after they realize and understand the benefits and effectiveness of IBS practises. A model of IBS supply chain is also developed. Any IBS related problems can be solved through the establishment of impeccable and efficient flexibility supply chain. This research is hoped to be the precursor to further work in enhancing performances of industrial development of IBS Malaysia towards a better and outstanding level
