Abstract

The paper describes two approaches to select easily methods for the support of single working steps within the design process. Further, it is essential for the desired support of the entire process, to combine methods to a spanning sequence. Because of this, a concept was developed which combine methods compliantly using the correspondence of output information of a method with input information of the following method. Beyond, a method combination is appropriate to increase the number and result quality of complex working steps, e.g. while searching for working principles. For this reason, a systematically established guideline for the successive application of various methods is presented which supports the search for working principles.
