Answer-Set Programming (ASP) is a well-known formalism for declarative problem solving, enjoying a continuously increasing number of diverse applications. However, arguably one of the main challenges for a wider acceptance of ASP is the need of tools, methods, and methodologies that support the actual programming process. In this paper, the authors review the main goals of a project, funded by the Austrian Science Fund (FWF), which aims to address this aspect in a systematic manner. The project is planned for duration of three years and started in September 2009. Generally, the focus of research will be on methodologies for systematic program development, program testing, and debugging.
