Ahmet Ergulen

Abstract:
To cope with increasing and changing competition environment with globalisation, organisations have to achieve quality. And, it can be argued that information technologies, as an exceptional factor that is able to affect all units and functions of organisations, plays an important role in achieving quality. This study aims at determining the extent to which information technologies and systems are used in production lines for 162 SMEs (Small and Medium Size Enterprises) organisations operating in various sectors in Adana Province. The results obtained from an analysis of the data, collected implementing a survey, employing exploratory factor analysis, indicates that information technologies contribute significantly to TQM (Total Quality Management) and to each dimension of TQM. In addition, empirical results show that information technology does not affect equally all the dimensions of TQM.
