It was found out that Japan’s miraculous economics glory was a resultant effect to TQM. Japan produced goods and able to sell at a price which was lower than what it was costing the Americans and Europeans to produce them just-in-time (JIT) system enables then to produce and sell their product without incurring any cost of warehousing, “Ringi system” and like-long employment tatic were some of the component of the total quality management technical to economic success (Fapounda, 1997).
