Design Methods

An overview of different design methods/tools and where they can be used in a design framework/process

The design methods (aka tools) listed are suggested as useful here within the SADIMET framework. Firstly, the methods can be used in any of the frameworks listed (OBREDIMET, Design Web, CEAP, etc.), and others. Secondly, use of one or more methods is not intended to be restricted to any particular stage in the framework (e.g. in the Survey stage) – any one method may be usable in other stages (multi-functional elements) and likewise the aims of each stage are achieved using multiple methods. This flexibility and variation is dependent on your reflection and discretion. Finally, there are of course many other methods/tools available - try fitting in whatever stage they function well in/are effective.
