Laboratory of Systemic Modeling LAMS

  • Our research feeds our teaching and our consulting
  • Our research is based on general system thinking (GST), which is the core theory, - or unifying metaphor for all of what we do.
  • Our research is related to multiple research domains - such as enterprise architecture, requirements engineering, service sciences and event strategic thinking. We apply GST in these different domains.
  • Our research is, most of the time, using IS Design Science. We sometimes use anthropological research methods. We can also use formal methods when a formalization is necessary. This gives us rigor in our research.
  • Our research projects are often based on concrete, existing industrial projects. This gives us relevance in our research.
