dc.description.abstractENGLISH ABSTRACT: The lack of maintenance engineering performance is one of the main causes of poor service delivery. In a passenger rail company, maintenance engineering performance is measured using several parameters, which include the ability of the organisation to upgrade and replace its fleet, the availability of spares, skills availability, information flow, and information technology. The aim of this study was to investigate the situation in a passenger rail company in South Africa in order to determine whether its supply chain management practices would influence business performance and, in this case, maintenance engineering performance. After a chi-square test was done, the results showed that there was a positive influence by supply chain management practices on business performance.en_ZA

dc.cibjournalAFRIKAANS OPSOMMING: ’n Tekort aan instandhoudingsingenieurswese prestasie is een van die hoof oorsake van swak dienslewering. Instandhoudings-ingeneurswese prestasie in ’n passasiers spoormaatskapy word gemeet aan die hand van verskeie parameters wat insluit die vermoë van die organisasie om sy vloot op te gradeer en te vervang, die beskikbaarheid van spaar onderdele, die beskikbaarheid van vaardighede, die vloei van inligting, en informasie tegnologie. Die doel van hierdie studie was om die omstandighede in ’n passasiers spoormaatskappy in Suid Afrika te ondersoek met die doel om te bepaal of voorsieningskettingbestuur praktyke ’n invloed sal uitoefen op besigheidsprestasie, meer spesifiek, instandhoudings ingenieurswese prestasie. ’n Chi-kwadraat toets het getoon dat voorsieningskettingbestuur praktyke wel ’n positiewe invloed op besigheidsprestasie het.af_ZA
