This paper deals with the application of adaptive model objects for integration of modeling products and robot systems. Product modeling is an advanced method for integration of product related computer descriptions. Product model describes engineering related information about parts and assemblies in a mechanical system. Robots use this information for flexible automated manufacturing of the modeled product. Consequence of definition or change of model objects may be unacceptable change in production. To prevent similar problems by improper design at production, two-way communication is needed between product design and production planning. The authors proposed highly integrated model objects for this purpose. Model objects evaluate and react inside and outside changes by analysis of the related behaviors. Adaptivity features are created and then applied for behavior driven generation of modification of model entities. This paper analyzes process-oriented product modeling of robot application related mechanical systems. The proposed objects are composed by elementary, structural, relationship, behavior, knowledge and adaptivity features. This paper also discusses integration of multi layered robot process model with shape models, procedure of modification handling by behavior features in a product-robot model system, general architecture of the proposed model objects and behavior feature driven activities of active model objects on four levels.
