Abstract

The use of methods is a success factor in modern product development and is of decisive importance for the overall economic success of a company. The positive effects of using a method have been extensively described in numerous scientific investigations. However, existing investigations also repeatedly show that the application situation of methods in industry differs significantly from the theoretical guiding principles, and that a comparatively subdued use of methods takes place in companies. This article describes the results of a literature research and an investigation into the current status of the use of methods in product development. Based on these initial findings, a basic research approach is described in order to improve the use of efficient methods in future practice. Obstacles to the use of current methods have to be identified and incentives for the use of new methods established.
