dc.description.abstractManufacturing industry in the developing countries has been grown significantly over the last decade due to increased public demand, Government's initiatives, and the investors increased interest in the manufacturing sector. Unfortunately, quality of product is still an important issue for the locally produced goods. Only a few manufacturers are producing high quality products with higher customer satisfaction. Many of them are holding quality certificates but a few has reached a stage of development where they are able to apply modern quality principles and techniques effectively. Research on product quality improvement shows that meeting customer satisfaction, increasing profits and reducing losses to a minimum level can be attained through the application of modern quality philosophies and principles such as Total Quality Management (TQM). Understanding the tools and techniques of TQM is considered to be significant in order to get useful results. A better understanding is required to investigate the current status of TQM implementation. This research article presents an investigation of current quality control practices and analyses the prospects and potential barriers in implementing the most modern quality technique and principles within the manufacturing industries in one of the rapidly developing countries. The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, one of the most promising developing countries has been chosen for this investigation to assess the potentiality of implementing TQM technique and principles in order to improve the customer satisfactions and market share.en_US
