Abstract

Software development in software development organizations is a complex process and may require knowledge management techniques. If the development is oriented to the creation of a prosumer platform for managing ambient intelligence scenarios, the development could be even more complex. In this paper we present a prosumer model based on our experiences developing prosumer platforms for ambient intelligence scenarios. The model we proposed is composed of a set of six roles (users, service consumers, prosumers, advanced prosumers, platform developers and domain experts), a lifecycle for the prosumer services with eight different states and a methodology where four of the mentioned roles cooperate to develop a service provisioning platform and to propose new add-ons to improve the platform functionality in order to create services in a concrete ambient intelligence scenario.
