Abstract: The concept of NAOS Preparation Software (PS) enables any user to optimize the adaptive optics (AO) system, independently of his/her level of expertise. The required inputs merely focus on the choice of the astronomical object used to close the AO loop, while hiding technical parameters of the system to the astronomer's view. This is achieved by using a priori knowledge of the instrument to select the best configuration. The PS also returns an estimation of the expected performance. For convenient use, the PS is accessible on the World Wide Web throughout Phases I and II of the preparation.
