We present the Prometheus methodology for designing agents and multi-agent systems. The methodology is intended to be practical; in particular, it aims to be complete and detailed, and to be usable by industrial software developers and undergraduate students. We present the methodology using a case study, describe existing tools that support both design and implementation, and report on experiences with using Prometheus, including our experiences in teaching Prometheus to an undergraduate class over the past few years. These experiences provide evidence that Prometheus is usable by its intended target audience.
