The practical aspect of the study was applied in Al Wasat Refineries Company, where the researcher adopted the descriptive analytical approach, and the study sample was chosen intentionally in order to obtain the best results. 14 forms are not suitable for analysis, so 168 forms remain subject to statistical analysis, and the total response rate by respondents was 85.7%. In order to test the hypotheses of the study, the researcher used a set of statistical tools, including (normal distribution test, confirmatory factor analysis, reliability coefficient (Cronbach's alpha), Pearson correlation coefficient, and structural equation modeling). He relied on the statistical analysis programs, which are (SPSS V. 23), and (Amos V. 23). The study reached a number of conclusions, the most important of which is the existence of a negative statistically significant correlation and effect between the strategy S5 and the reduction of product costs. The five in all its dimensions, as well as the balance between the quality of its products and reducing the costs of those products.
