Due to the emergence of experiments in product development and yet still missing systematic adjustment of the generic experimental design procedure to test design methods. a facilitation is required. A concept map to depict the most important elements to consider when validating design methods in an experiment was developed systematically to guide method developers. Combining literature findings with the analysis of six cases in academia and an intensive exchange of researchers between different institutions resulted in the concept map. Future research potentials in the definition of variables. gaining objective results and managing the required tools are outlined. The concept map is available online for further feedback from the community.
