Participate in the workshop „Design Science Research: Best Practices and Tool Support“ at MKWI 2018.
Together with our partners we developed new features for MyDesignProcess at Uni.li
on Tool Support in Design Science at DESRIST 2017
Successfully launched the version 1.0 of MyDesingProcess at the DESRIT 2017.

Design Science Research (DSR) is now an accepted research paradigm in the Information Systems (IS) field, aiming at developing purposeful IT artifacts and knowledge about the design of IT artifacts. A rich body of knowledge on approaches, methods, and frameworks supports researchers in conducting DSR projects. While methodological guidance is abundant, there is little support and guidance for documenting and effectively managing DSR processes. In this article, we present a set of design principles for tool support for DSR processes along with a prototypical implementation (MyDesignProcess.com). We argue that tool support for DSR should enable researchers and teams of researchers to structure, document, maintain, and present DSR, including the resulting design knowledge and artifacts. Such tool support can increase traceability, collaboration, and quality in DSR. We illustrate the use of our prototypical implementation by applying it to published cases, and we suggest guidelines for using tools to effectively manage design-oriented research.
“I recently started to use MDP for planning and documenting one of my design science research projects. It helps me to increase efficiency in collaboration with our interdisciplinary team. Also, MDP enables us to create a research log that provides a clear and concise documentation of the research process as a whole, and each individual iteration in particular.”
MDP Partners support the idea and the further development of MDP as part of their own interest in Design Science Research and free of any financial obligations.
