I have a hard question in relation to proof of demonstration as a possible way to validate my research artefacts and thus can argue proof of demonstration as an appropriate research method.
In brief, my PhD research is about a process model to support change impact analysis. I have developed process model for CIA as a research artefact. There were two main inputs to develop process model of CIA (i) gap analysis from Literature review (ii) Interview results from practitioners (from software industry). Now I want to validate or evaluate my developed research artefact but from the research methodology literature, I could not find any clue that proof of demonstration can be used for validation purpose.
Note: it is not possible to go for case study or experiment as I didn’t find any organisation willing to do so and neither myself and my supervisors have any industry contact. Additionally I am near to finish my research. I had no choice and I have already completed proof of demonstration with an example system. Now I am very stressed as my supervisor argued that there is no reference you provided where proof of demonstration by an exemplar can be referred as research method. I am very depressing as I am in 5th years and have written 6 chapters already. Only validation is remaining. Please help me.

You should read this – see 2.1.
Chris Johnson’s contact details are there too.
And this too: https://docs.google.com/viewer?a=v&q=cache:e0QilxCNTOEJ:citeseerx.ist.psu.edu/viewdoc/download%3Fdoi%3D10.1.1.3.5361%26rep%3Drep1%26type%3Dpdf+%22proof+by+demonstration%22+site:.edu&hl=en&gl=uk&pid=bl&srcid=ADGEESh17CFiE3HpO9wpHpQDYWcdr_MxsNTYgxO2c-Wu2ErwjRkCNwPb5TmtRABhOlJpPy1J8DbLnjTA8PnxTB7dK9jSznLxSQNPkYRLS2HzGcpRijiubCKbEheagH3HK3x622Tehatc&sig=AHIEtbS4fXFFuDEfVZN-7GlWJ1pNV0wfpw
Hope this helps!

This also refers to proof by demonstration as a methodology…
http://www.dcs.gla.ac.uk/publications/PAPERS/8445/sigsce-final.pdf – And here, see page 103 where it lists ‘Research Methods in Computing’.
I hope this gives you what you need!
