In such circumstances belong to organizations that can successfully in the global market, maintain and constantly improve its position. The global market consists of organizations which set of different nationalities in the areas of quality, cost, customer satisfaction and to compete with world class manufacturing (WCM) to one of the concerns of manufacturers today in fact, the world has become a world-class manufacturing to achieve the status of an ideology that has produced world-class production capabilities to compete in the international arena is used. Therefore the aim of this study was to investigate factors affecting the success of the organization is implementing WCM. We in this study, the relationship between strategic and tactical elements with WCM and interaction between strategic and tactical elements together and examine factors.

In order to achieve those objectives, thirteen hypotheses on the relationship between strategic and tactical elements with each other and with WCM developed and examined. To test this hypothesis, this study LISREL 8.5 software for structural equation modeling (SEM) and path analysis is used. The findings of this study show that, firstly, all strategic factors (commitment and support of senior management, quality circles, continuous improvement and customer orientation) have a direct positive impact on the success of their organizations. The Second WCM in all tactical factors (supply chain management, management technical capabilities and management facilities for production) also has a direct positive impact on the success of the organizations. And thirdly, two important strategic WCM circle tactical factors affect the quality and continuous improvement through them; indirectly affect the success of your WCM Put. As a result, organizations must move towards globalization, all these factors with respect to the direct and indirect impact on the WCM consider.
