This paper discusses how to advance the service engineering research. The service engineering is still established as study, and has not been completed. However, it dared to take up how to advance the service engineering research. As for the reason, the following three points are thought. First of all, the methodology of an original service engineering cannot establish it yet. The secondly, researchers involved in the service engineering have taken an active part to the research in various fields. Thirdly, the service engineering is researched therefore based on each one’s current knowledge. It has been thought that it is necessary to devise a method that manages to be unified. Of course, what respect you should note while thinking about the system of the service engineering now is described. Especially, it is thought that the finding of a deeply related field to the Ergonomics is needed in the service engineering.
