Abstract: In this paper we have analyzed design science research (DSR) from a process perspective. Our analysis is mainly based on the paper, “Design science in information systems research” (Hevner et al., 2004) and an empirical study embracing seven organizations. In Hevner et al., (2004) there are two major contributions: 1) an information systems research framework and 2) seven design guidelines. In this paper, we have chosen to focus on the latter contribution. The purpose of the suggested seven design guidelines is to “… assist researchers, reviewers, editors, and readers to understand the requirements for effective design-science research”. However, there is no explicit information in which order the guidelines are supposed to be conducted and if there is an order of sub-activities (sub-processes) within each guideline. Hence, we are challenging the recommendations of how design science research should be conducted by applying a process perspective. Our research contribution consists of a suggestion for improved guidelines for DSR presented as a process model. We have analyzed each guideline according to required input, recommended activities and expected output. The process model demonstrates relationships between the seven guidelines and outlines activities that are supposed to be conducted within each guideline.
