Abstract

This paper describes a Knowledge Management Framework for Software Configuration Management, which will enable efficient engineering, deployment, and run-time management of reconfigurable ambient intelligent services. Software Configuration Management (SCM) procedures are commonly initiated by device agents located in the users gateways. The Knowledge Management Framework makes use of Ontologies to represent knowledge required to perform SCM and to perform knowledge inference based on Description Logic reasoning. The work has been carried out within the European project COMANCHE that will utilize ontology models to support SCM. The COMANCHE ontology has been developed to provide a standard data model for the information that relates to SCM, and determine (infer) which SW Services need to be installed on the devices of users.
