An overview of contemporary methods of crystal structure solution from powder diffraction data is given. Methods are compared with respect to their advantages and disadvantages. A choice of an appropriate method is discussed in the light of understanding the structural problem to be solved. The need of the variety of methods for the variety of problems is illustrated by examples. Some directions of possible future development are discussed.
