A methodology for designing context-aware decision support systems based on typical knowledge integration models is proposed. These models describe the functional capabilities of the system at different stages of its usage. The models are used to specify requirements for information and knowledge from the side of the context-aware system. The comparison of these requirements with the user requirements for the system functional capabilities and user restrictions allows us to obtain the functional capabilities that are available for a given user.
