Abstract

The industrial relevance of design science has always been vividly discussed. That is why an empirical study on the industrial perception of design science in the Swiss manufacturing industry has been carried out. Ten CTOs and development leaders from leading Swiss companies have been interviewed regarding the level of recognition, knowledge transfer, and topics of design science. Generally, there seems to be no clear idea on design science in industry despite its topics being considered as important and interesting. Knowledge transfer primarily occurs through applied research projects with academia. Academic publications are hardly read in industry. Based on these findings, several avenues for industry - oriented research are identified.

Keywords: design science, knowledge transfer, research topics
