Design Science

Design science is becoming evermore important to not only develop high standard theoretical concepts, but also to design smart solutions to complex problems which is crucial to CME's close engagement with industry. Design science is an approach that especially focuses on 'field tested and grounded technological rules to be used as design exemplars of managerial problem solving' (van Aken 2004). Within the group of CME several research projects are executed according to these approaches. Areas of research are systems engineering, health, asset management and knowledge management.
