The purpose of this study is to identify relationship between the working situation of soap industries in Sudan and their engineering management strategies, considering number of samples of soap industries which facing a problem of misunderstanding of applying the total quality management systems in Sudanese soap factories (which are almost owned by famous rich families), as a one of the total profit indicators when taking into consideration the competition and consumer satisfaction, beside the long term conservation of energy and machinery life. To discover the fact behind this, clear links have been establish between the evaluation of strategies and the summary of findings derived from the raw data, by using the inductive method represented by observation, data collection, pattern of data, hypothesis and generalization a theory, which confirms the prediction, that the chosen samples were suffering directly from engineering management strategies execution, either for energy management or materials management systems, because of lacking or not applying the proper strategy.
