n South African Journal of Industrial Engineering - Industrial engineering in Namibia : a personal and preliminary view : guest editorial

Volume 22, Issue 2
  • ISSN : 1012-277X



While Namibia is a Republic with just over two thirds the geographical area of South Africa, its population is only 2.3 million (under 5 percent of that in South Africa). Its estimated production (measured by GDP) is $ 9.4billion (US) as compared with $ 287billion (US) for South Africa (just over 3 percent) making it less wealthy per person than South Africa. As a small economy in Southern Africa many people may say that Industrial Engineering in Namibia does not exist. They are incorrect as Industrial Engineers do "" (Sperotto 19941). That includes all who start and run the wealth creating organisations including those in Namibia.
