In this paper we describe our effort to merge two existing AOSE methodologies, Prometheus and ROADMAP, by isolating a set of general purpose common elements. The remaining parts of the two methodologies are componentized into special purpose 'value-adding' features. This approach empowers the developer to assemble a methodology tailored to the given project (the application domain) by adding appropriate features to the common elements. The assembled methodology can be modified during development to support changing aspects of the system.
