Abstract

Nowadays most of the design methods introduced in literature are not new but rather modifications or further developments of existing methods. Therefore the system of methods has an evolutionary grown character. Hence the aim of investigating elementary methods is to develop a systematic approach for the deduction, description and improvement of design methods. This paper shows a systematic approach for investigating elementary design methods. Thus, a system of model spaces in product development was created, which is the basis to review the sub-processes within product development.

Keywords: elementary methods, design methods, design processses
