A pattern-based methodology for design of context-aware decision support systems is proposed. The methodology is based on knowledge fusion patterns for the knowledge fusion processes occurring at different stages of a context-aware decision support system. The methodology as it stands focuses on the context-aware stages of the system. For the knowledge fusion processes ongoing at these stages the patterns' elements relevant to the methodology are specified. Usage of the patterns to propose system functionality depending on the user needs is demonstrated.
