The system contains state-of-the-art contents on methods of product development. According to the requirements of different types of users and situations, it offers adequate access to method knowledge in two environments (courses, methods). Methods can be selected according to their fit to processes and tasks or considering their attributes. The system is addressed to students as well as practitioners in industry.
