The reconstruction of a warm inflationary universe model from the scalar spectral index and the tensor to scalar ratio r(N) as a function of the number of e-folds N is studied. Under a general formalism we find the effective potential and the dissipative coefficient in terms of the cosmological parameters and r considering the weak and strong dissipative stages under the slow roll approximation. As a specific example, we study the attractors for the index given by and for the ratio , in order to reconstruct the model of warm inflation. Here, expressions for the effective potential and the dissipation coefficient are obtained.
