Abstract: This research document was intended to detect the impacts of quality management elements on product quality in manufacturing sectors. The research identified nine QM elements; - EMI, CUB, COI, HRM, QUP, PRM, SUM and QUT that impact PRQ. Self-administered structural questionnaires were prepared and distributed to 73 manufacturing sectors in Ethiopia, 57(78.2%) papers were filled and returned back. The questions were loaded in SPSS v20 and descriptive statistic, correlation and regression analysis were conducted for data analysis purpose. The result of this paper confirmed that 9 predictor variables accounted for 78.1% of the variation in PRQ. The outcome of the result confirmed that COI, QUT, PRM, QUP, EMI, CBU and SUM positively and to grate extent impacts Product quality of manufacturing sectors. While LED and HRM have no contribution for product quality in this sectors.
