The design of a large database management system on top of an object-oriented platform which is implemented on a tightly coupled multiprocessor system requires a large number of design decisions. There exist no methodology to evaluate the consequences and compare the differences between them. Looking into experimental methodology in physics we find a lot of similarities and techniques we think that are useful to solve our problems. A discussion is presented in which way such experiments have to be set up and of the tools that are required. The status of the project and our experience up till now is presented.
