The approach of this paper aims to support the complete multi-agent systems life cycle, integrated by two existing and widely accepted tools, Protégé Ontology Editor and Knowledge-Base Framework, and Prometheus Development Kit. A general sequence of steps facilitating application creation is proposed in this paper. We propose that it seems reasonable to integrate all traditional software development stages into one single methodology. This view provides a general approach for MAS creation, starting with problem definition and resulting in program coding, deployment and maintenance. The proposal is successfully being applied to situation assessment issues, which has concluded in an agent-based decision-support system for environmental impact evaluation.
