This paper introduces PROPOST - project portfolio support tool, a knowledge-based software tool for supporting project definition on project portfolio management. This tool was modeled using the MAAEM methodology and the ONTORMAS ontology-driven tool, by reusing the ONTOWUM and ONTOINFO ontologies, which describe software product families for the development of information retrieval and filtering applications. PROPOST intends to contribute for resource optimization by supporting reuse of existing information systems, as well as avoiding duplicity on project definition for software portfolio composition. The development of this tool also demonstrates how ontologies can help in the software development process.
