Product models are used for decision making during the development process. They are based on assumptions by the designer, which are made under a lack of information, so the designer has to make assumptions under uncertainty. The problem arise, that decision making is also allocated to uncertainty, whereby variations between the realized and the planned product behaviour may occur. This paper gives an approach to support the designer to handle uncertainty during product modelling by a systematic linkage of information from the product lifecycle to the specific needs of product modelling.
