Abstract

Design research as an information systems research paradigm aims for the construction and evaluation of innovative artifacts for relevant problems. Design science reflects the design research process aiming to create standards for its rigor. Design science produces guidelines and metrics for the construction and evaluation of artifacts. In the field of method engineering design science established situational method engineering as a means to maintain rigor of artifacts, while at the same time integrating situation-specific adaptation mechanisms to increase applicability and thus improve relevance. The design science knowledge base on situational method engineering however lacks a systematic integration between the semantics of a method and the semantics of the situations it is adapted for. The work presented in this paper applies ontological meta modeling to address a better representation of the interdependencies between method elements and configuration rules in situational method configuration and demonstrates its exemplary application on an existing artifact.
