This paper examines structural equation models applied to modelling customer satisfaction. A number of weaknesses of the structural equations approach are discussed in both theoretical modelling and application to customer satisfaction measurement. The weaknesses of the structural equations approach are reflected in poor prediction and applicability of customer satisfaction models in business. An alternative utility based framework is suggested that improves on many of the deficiencies of the structural equations approach.
