The implementation of design methods in industry is still rather poor, although they were developed and dedicated to support the often challenging task of product development. The assumption of our work presented in the paper is that a short and concise overview of existing methods together with a selection aid and application hints from practical experience will lead to adequate method use. Hence we created a so-called Landscape of Methods (LoM), an easy-to-use approach to identify and highlight task specific combinations and sequences of method application.
