Smart Environments are increasingly composed from individual components (smart appliances) that have to assemble themselves into a coherently acting ensemble. This requires software technologies that enable appliances to cooperate spontaneously on behalf of the users needs. In this paper we will illustrate why a goal based approach is necessary and how explicit goals can be used to find system comprehensive strategies and how goals can be used as a benchmark to evaluate the system design.
