Combining case study and simulation methods in supply chain management research

Hellström, Daniel LU and Nilsson, Fredrik LU (2006) 15th Annual IPSERA Conference In The 15th Annual IPSERA conference proceedings
Abstract
Using the case study research method as well as empirical quantitative-based simulation methods are becoming increasingly common in supply chain management research. However, rare signs of efforts of combining these are to be found in literature. This paper contributes to the further development of research practices by presenting and discussing the concept of combining case study and simulation. Combining the methods into a multimethod study allows the researcher to harmonise the weaknesses and assess the relative strengths of the various methods. A model of combining the methods is provided giving guidance and insights into the process of combining the methods.
