Based on a literature research on engineering design research, engineering design methodologies and their development, requirements on engineering design methodologies are reasoned, grouped into a checklist-type catalogue and evaluated for their interrelations. The set of requirements aims at the assessment of individual methodologies, the comparison of different methodologies and the support of the development of new methodologies. The requirements have been found to be reasonably independent from each other in general whereas a group of five proved to be prominent by showing, in contrast to the rest, frequent interdependencies with other requirements.

Keywords: requirements, design methodology, design methods, design process, design science, design research, mechatronics
