Abstract

The potential of design methodologies (DM) does not seem to be recognised or is underestimated and so far only little used. The goal of the paper is to discuss and to analyse the problem of user acceptance to promote understanding of long-term effects or strategic aspects of DM. Strategic aspects of design methodologies have not taken into consideration until now, neither in objectives nor in comments on DM. The comparison of requirements and objectives of DM, the experiences of the authors of DM and the results of descriptive studies gave an initial indication of potential user acceptance problems. In a first step, fundamental concepts were defined, a representation model was discussed and possible strategic aspects of DM were specified.
