The design of integrated optics (I0) devices requires dedicated numerical algorithms and related software. Today's commercial tools cover a wide range of the needs, and manifold tasks can be solved this way. A short survey an specific I0-design tools and other design software that is related to particular aspects of I0 is given. The basic physics and math behind the graphical user interface is discussed in some detail for a few of the popular schemes for mode solving and field propagation. Aspects of system design and the multi-physics character of I0-microsystems are considered, and the potential complexity of 10-design is demonstrated for a micro-optical coupling of a fibre and a photonic crystal waveguide.
