چکیده

پژوهش در علم طراحی یکی از رویکردهای پژوهشی است که اخیراً توسط محققین حوزه مدیریت مورد توجه قرار گرفته است. با این وجود، تعداد مطالعات تجربی و کاربردی که از روش شناسی پژوهش در علم طراحی برای حل مسائل مدیریتی استفاده کنند به ویژه در ایران، بسیار اندک است. کمبودهایی در پیشینه پژوهش در علم طراحی همچون شفاف نبودن روابط میان جنبه های مختلف روش شناسی پژوهش، عدم پیشنهاد ابزارها و تکنیک های مشخص برای اجرای مراحل روش شناسی و عدم توجه به برخی از فراورده های مهم آن همچون روش ها، می تواند از مهمترین دلایل این عدم اقبال به پژوهش در علم طراحی باشد. مطالعه حاضر قصد دارد تا با بررسی نظام مند پیشینه تحقیق این کمبودها را مورد بررسی قرار دهد و راهکارهایی برای رفع آن ها ارائه دهد. همچنین به منظور انسجام بخشیدن به مباحث مطرح شده، مثالی از به کارگیری پژوهش در علم طراحی برای طراحی یک روش مدلسازی سیستم های پیچیده فنی-اجتماعی بطور خلاصه ارائه می گردد.

چکیده [English]

esign science research (DSR) is a modern and contemporary approach which is recently used by system science researchers such as information system scientists and decision support system experts. However, these years, a few studies in decision and management science have employed design science research to solve managerial problems especially in Iran. It is due to the lack of transparency in its theoretical background and some gaps in design science research literature such as inadequate techniques and tools, ignore of some important artifacts like method and vagueness in relations among different components of design science research. The current study aims to do a systematic literature review to discuss these gaps and develop initiatives to solve them. Moreover, it proposes some new techniques and tools to do design science research. Finally, to illustrate applicability of the developed methodology, an example is presented. It uses the developed methodology to design a modeling method of the complex social and technical systems.
