Application of design science research to design a modelling approach for procurement of infrastructure systems

Conference Paper


Abstract


  • Model-driven approaches are widely used in managing the complex domains such as infrastructure systems or disaster management. The foundation of conducting a systematic research is designing a methodology that pertinently covers the steps of research from problem definition to solution proposal and then identifying or tailoring a method for developing and validating the solution. This paper explains the application of Design Science for conducting a research which aims at providing a model-driven approach for addressing the complexities of infrastructure procurement projects. So firstly the design science artefacts are adopted for designing the method for this research. Then the steps of this method are explained briefly along with description of how each step is applied in this research. The core of this method is proposing a process for developing and validating the metamodels which is designed based on combination of other metamodeling processes.
