The focus of this paper is based on an engineer's view on working methods in design and development. Authors have described basic methods like TOTE, elementary methods like 'compare', methods like 'brainstorming' and methodologies like QFD. The proposed model includes the process, the purpose of the elements of the method, the analysis of useful and harmful elements, strengths and weaknesses, threats and opportunities. The result is a better understanding for the user and a basis for adaptation to the situation. The quality check specifies the usability. A web-based tool called CiDaD (Competence in Design and Development) will give optimal support to users.

Keywords: Methods, methodology, quality measures, analysis of methods
