RESEARCH METHODOLOGY

RESEARCH Research means search for facts in order to find answers to certain questions or to find solutions to certain problems. It is often referred to as scientific inquiry or scientific investigation into a specific problem or situation. This is because the search for facts should be made by scientific method rather than by arbitrary method. The scientific method uses systematic rational approach to search for facts, whereas, the arbitrary method attempts to find answers to questions on the basis of imagination and ones own beliefs and judgments. William C. Emory in his book Business Research Methods defines research as any organized inquiry designed and carried out to provide information for solving a problem. METHODOLOGY In simple terms methodology can be defined as, it is used to give a clear cut idea on what the researcher is carrying out his or her research. In order to plan in a right point of time and to advance the research work methodology makes the right platform to the researcher to mapping out the research work in relevance to make solid plans.

More over methodology guides the researcher to involve and to be active in his or her particular field of enquiry. Most of the situations the aim of the research and the research

topic wont be same at all time it varies from its objectives and flow of the research but by adopting a suitable methodology this can be achieved.

Right from selecting the topic and carrying out till recommendations research methodology drives the researcher in the right track. The entire research plan is based on the concept of right methodology.

More over through methodology the external environment constitutes the research by giving a depth idea on setting the right research objective, followed by literature point of view, based on that chosen analysis through interviews or questionnaires findings will be obtained and finally concluded message by this research.

On the other hand from the methodology the internal environment constitutes by understanding and identifying the right type of research, strategy, philosophy, time horizon, approaches, followed by right procedures and techniques based on his or her research work. In other hand the research methodology acts as the nerve center because the entire research is bounded by it and to perform a good research work, the internal and external environment has to follow the right methodology process.

RESEARCH METHODOLOGY

Research methodology is a set of various methods to be followed to find out various information regarding market strata of different products. Research methodology required in every industry for acquiring knowledge of their products.

RESEARCH DESIG

A research design is purely and simply the frame work or plan for a study that guides in the collection and analysis of the data. There are three types of research designs, they are Exploratory research design Descriptive research design Casual or experimental research design Since this study attempts to describe the demographic, economic and psychographic features of the respondents, it is a descriptive research.

Descriptive research design Descriptive research is one that concerned with describing the characteristics of a particular individual, or of a group. The descriptive study is typically concerned with determining frequency with which something occurs or how two variables vary together. Here the problems are defined and the solutions are provided.

SOURCES OF DATA There are two types of data namely primary data and secondary data.

Primary data Primary data refers to those data that are collected newly and they are not used earlier. The researcher has to gather the primary data freshly for the specific study undertaken by him.

The primary data can be collected by three methods namely observation method, experimentation method and survey method. Survey research is the systematic gathering of data from respondents through questionnaires.

Secondary data The secondary data refers to those data which were gathered for some other purpose and are already available in the firms internal records and commercial trade or government publications.

DATA COLLECTION METHOD The primary data required for this study is collected through schedules. This schedule method is also like the collection of data through questionnaires, with little difference which lies in the fast that questions are being filled in by the enumerators according to the replies of the respondents for the questions. QUALITATIVE TOOLS: Qualitative research is aimed at gaining a deep understanding of a specific organization or event, rather than surface description of a large sample of a population. It aims to provide an explicit rendering of the structure, order, and broad patterns found among a group of participants. It is also called ethno methodology or field research. It generates data about human groups in social settings. Qualitative research does not introduce treatments or manipulate variables, or impose the researcher's operational definitions of variables on the participants. Rather, it lets the meaning emerge from the participants. It is more flexible in that it can adjust to the
8

setting. Concepts, data collection tools, and data collection methods can be adjusted as the research progresses. Qualitative research aims to get a better understanding through firsthand experience, truthful reporting, and quotations of actual conversations. It aims to understand how the participants derive meaning from their surroundings, and how their meaning influences their behavior. Qualitative research uses observation as the data collection method. Observation is the selection and recording of behaviors of people in their environment. Observation is useful for generating in-depth descriptions of organizations or events, for obtaining information that is otherwise inaccessible, and for conducting research when other methods are inadequate. Observation is used extensively in studies by psychologists, anthropologists, sociologists, and program evaluators. Direct observation reduces distortion between the observer and what is observed that can be produced by an instrument (e.g., questionnaire). It occurs in a natural setting, not a laboratory or controlled experiment. The context or background of behavior is included in observations of both people and their environment. And it can be used with inarticulate subjects, such as children or others unwilling to express themselves. In my project I have make use of qualitative tools like average, means, standard deviation and chi test.
