Abstract

Design methodology has become a major part of research in the field of engineering and offers a large variety of methods in order to establish effective and efficient product development processes. A problem yet is that methods are barely used in practice or used in a wrong way. Reasons for this situation are discussed with a focus on an apparently wrong understanding of methods and their meaning, which may be determined in their design. First approaches for a more flexible use of methods are presented. Finally, we would like to propose another, more appropriate view on methods and point out the consequences for their design (elementary methods, constituents), teaching, and industrial use (methods as products), including science itself.
