Abstract

This research project focuses on the issues related to the methods and techniques used for doing research in the academic area of Operations Management. There exists a growing need of enlarging the set of available methodologies to approach the challenges and decision-making problems in the field of manufacturing and logistics of goods and services. First, we introduce several observations about science and scientific research. Then we go on to analyze four currently usual research methodologies in the Operations Management area: case study research, action-research, survey research and quantitative modelling and simulation. The document concludes by comparing the different methods and proposing a guideline to select the most suitable research methodology depending on the research questions of the inquiry.
