Design Science is an academic field concerned with the systematic and scientific development of solutions to problems within information systems.
It was first introduced by Herbert Simon, a Nobel Prize-winning economist, who argued that design should be viewed as a problem-solving process.
In the context of information systems development, Design Science aims to develop new theories, models, methods, and technologies that can be used to improve the design and development of information systems.
The ultimate goal is to produce design artifacts, such as software and systems, that are effective, efficient, and usable for the end-users.
Design Science uses a combination of scientific and engineering approaches to achieve these goals and is considered to be interdisciplinary, drawing on fields such as computer science, psychology, sociology, and management.
