With the rise of new paradigms like the Internet of Things, where thousands of devices and services of different providers are to be connected to complex processes, service-oriented approaches come to the fore. However, current solutions still lack of comprehensive methodologies how to dynamically manage and combine services to fulfil the given goals. In this paper we present a semantic-based service management methodology that enables the semantic description of services and provides an automatic service discovery and composition solution at design- and runtime. Furthermore, we present development tools that support the usage of semantic web technologies and we describe an execution environment where the approach is embedded. We conclude with an evaluation scenario from an e-mobility research project.
