Designing solutions: practical relevance and theoretical contribution
In this session, we present a set of research approaches typically used in industrial engineering and management (IEM). We begin by explaining what do design science, constructive research approach and interventionist research mean, followed by examples of their applications in the IEM research field. The similarities and interfaces of these approaches will be elaborated, particularly from the perspectives of practical relevance and theoretical contribution created with these approaches.
