This paper describes an approach towards the structuring of product development methods. This is necessary in order to build up method-tools according to these structures, which support both the designer in practice and the student at the university. The product development methods have to be structured in such a way that their similarities become dear. Different structuring criteria are pointed out with their properties and the dependencies among them. In further steps, the requirements on the method-tools and the circumstances of their application are shown. In conclusion, the following (future) work steps toward developing method-tools are described.
