Thesis chapter 3: Research design and methodology

There are several research methods used when academia interacts with an industrial setting; experiments, design science or research, action research or participative case studies .

This thesis is in essence a design project; developing artefacts, processes and methods to create opportunities for business for embedded software in mass-produced systems in general, and automotive software in particular. Therefore design research was chosen as the research methodology.

Many thesis topic ideas have been explored by experimentation, but I've never come across a study using participative case studies before. Do you know of any studies that used that method for concerning automotives?
