To improve the design process, it is aimed to optimise the description of design methods and the access to them for effective use in design projects and for better support of learning and teaching. The Process-oriented Method Model (PoMM) has been designed for a standardised description of design methods. The description-modules of the PoMM are organised into process modules and access modules. The process modules are designed in a process-oriented way and the contents have a direct influence to application. The access modules are designed for a flexible and detailed search and for linking to other design methods. The PoMM is suited as checklist for describing design methods and as guideline for teaching and applying them.
