Deployment of software units into embedded devices requires dedicated knowledge.
Usually, this is specialist knowledge, covering technology (hardware platform, software
technology) functionality (interfaces, interaction state machines), and processes (deployment procedures, rules). Gaining and applying this knowledge requires time. This paper presents the results of a case study identifying relevant knowledge for device deployment. The study analyses three different embedded device engines supporting service based device deployment. The identified knowledge, including how to deploy software units into the analysed device platforms, is used to construct a new model and to extend an existing semantic service based software unit reuse model. As a result, a usage environment employing this model enables an inexperienced user to repeat the stored deployment procedures without having all the required knowledge. In other words, these users will reuse the stored software unit knowledge. This paper addresses the topic of device deployment and software reuse knowledge.
