A good quality management is essential for improving manufacturing competitiveness. Most modern companies in the West have recognized the need to alter their thinking in terms of quality and how that can improve their business performance. Total quality management (TQM) has received considerable global attention both from researchers and from practitioners. TQM has become an essential strategy in both manufacturing and service organizations. This paper deals with the implementation issues of TQM in a gas turbine company which is located in the UK. The research involves studying the current quality problems in the company by collecting and analysing the appropriate information through structured interviews of employees. The results of the project are discussed to highlight the key enablers of TQM implementation in the gas turbine company. Based on the literature and case experiences, a framework for the implementation of TQM is presented.
