The paper introduces a method for design intent based behavior modeling of mechanical products. Environment adaptive model objects are applied for description of product related engineering objects. Knowledge is embedded, integrated, or referred in the model objects as description of design intent. Design intent controls creation and modification of product model objects. Behaviors of the modeled engineering objects are simulated for typical circumstances. Results of simulation are evaluated then applied at modification of environment adaptive product model objects. After an outline of the approach by the authors to the reported modeling, intent and knowledge sources are discussed and analyzed. Following this, application of intent definitions in environment adaptive model objects is shown. Finally, implementation and application issues are discussed.
