Abstract [en]

Innovation processes in the railway domain are highly chaotic due to the reciprocal influences of technological, social, and institutional dynamics over time. The ways by which gaming simulation can contribute to these processes is therefore highly context, time, and history dependent. Using three case studies, we explore basic recurrent patterns in these innovation processes and how the employment of gaming simulation has alleviated or attenuated these patterns. For different product architectures that characterize the innovation artifact, different patterns arise in different sequences for the process. We conclude that gaming's main active substance is in the opening up or closing down of technological, social, and institutional spaces. In addition, this impact is again highly moderated by the specific constellation of these spaces when a game is designed, executed, and analyzed. Broadly we see that in stable times, gaming simulation is able to decrease stability and thereby front-load much of the volatility otherwise found at later stages of the innovation process. In contrast, gaming simulation's ability to decrease volatility in volatile times is more problematic.
