The final goal of this study is to provide a model with structural modeling approach of virtual R & D implementation in Iranian ceramic tile companies and small and medium-sized industries and services are one of the broadest fields of activity of manufacturing and economic enterprises that are of great importance. Accordingly, the establishment and expansion of research and development systems in order to infuse new sciences and technologies into this industry is of great importance. Over the past few decades, in a highly competitive market, the development of new products has long been considered as a major contributing factor to the survival and growth of SMEs and manufacturing units and economic enterprises have a great desire to create and develop R & D and investment systems for their efficiency so the necessity of conducting this research was created for Iranian companies because SMEs are considered as engines of economic growth, particularly in developing countries and in a day-to-day market for freedom, the survival and continuity of SMEs depend on their ability to enhance their performance and production that are in accordance with international standards. The questionnaires and interviews used to examine the research questions. It was distributed among 114 experts after ensuring the reliability and validity. The research strategy is a survey-correlation questionnaire that has been compiled by a researcher-made questionnaire. The results of this study showed that the technology structure in virtual teams does not directly affect the implementation of virtual R & D. The knowledge structure of the individuals and the process structure can have a direct effect on the implementation of virtual R & D in the other hand this paper acknowledges the progress made over the past several decades, it focuses on the challenges and limits of Iranian Tile and Ceramic Companies.
