Abstract: Many CASE tools contain support to systems development methods.Some tools are closed standard packages for standard methods. There exist other tools which are possible to adapt to different methods. Such adaptable tools are often called CASE shells. The Paper presents a conceptual framework of methods and tools in systems development. The character of systems development work with method supported documentation is investigated. Different research approaches to the study of CASE shells and method adaptation are described. Some preliminary conclusions from the research project PRIMCASE are presented.
