11 By far the largest and best-established academic literature in service has emerged from service marketing. While the engineering/systems/operations viewpoint is a valuable one, and is an integral part of what SSME should be, its present dominance in the discussion threatens to make SSME much narrower than it ought to be. Rust, 2006 Service quality cannot be measured by low variability of service output; it is a personal affair, a matter of psychology. If this is perceived and knowledge of it pursued then Service Science has a far better chance of improving the quality and productivity of service provision Chase, 2006
