Introduction to design science methodology
Design science is the design and investigation of artifacts in context. In this talk I will discuss the top-level of design science as a pair of mutually nested cycles, namely the design cycle and the empirical research cycle. The structure of tasks in each of these cycles is reviewed, and in a discussion the audience will be allowed to relate these structures to their own research.
Bio: Roel Wieringa is Chair of Information and Software Systems Engineering at the University of Twente, the Netherlands. His research interests include modelling and design of e-business networks, requirements engineering , and research methodology for software engineering, information systems and the design sciences. He has written two books, Requirements Engineering: Frameworks for Understanding (Wiley, 1996) and Design Methods for Reactive Systems: Yourdon, Statemate and the UML (Morgan Kaufmann, 2003). His book Design Science Methodology for Information Systems and Software Engineering will appear in 2014 with Springer. Roel Wieringa has been head of the Computer Science Department of the UT from 2009 to 2012 and has been scientific director of the School for Information and Knowledge Systems (SIKS, www.siks.nl), that provides advanced education to all Dutch Ph.D. students in information and knowledge systems, from 2006 to 2011). He has been Associate Editor in Chief of IEEE Software for the area of requirements engineering from 2004 to 2007 and currently serves on the board of editors of the Requirements Engineering Journal and of the Journal of Software and Systems Modeling.
