Maintaining TQM in a Nuclear Power Plant through Training
The British University in Dubai (BUiD)
The main of the study used to identify the influence of training program outcome on the total quality management of the nuclear power plant in the UAE. Several sub-variables were identified to ease the process of reaching the research objective. For the purposes of this objective, a quantitative methodology was used. A five-point Likert Scale questionnaire was developed and distributed to the employees of Emirates Nuclear Energy Corporation (ENEC). The sample selection was done purposively with the questionnaire being distributed to five different levels of Management. Data analysis was carried out using the SPSS software. Results indicate that there is a general strong correlation between the training program outcome and the total quality management of the nuclear power plant in the UAE. Results for each of the sub-variable are presented and systematically discussed. Regression analysis was also carried out and a predictive model was developed for the relationship between the dependent and independent sub-variables. It was seen that almost all of the independent sub-variables had and influence on the dependent sub-variable, Knowledge Assets. Furthermore, One-Way ANOVA was carried out and the results of this test showed significant differences between the management groups.
