This paper proposes a new approach based on knowledge structures for building simulation models. The target are products to be redesigned integrating new technologies. The main idea of the approach is to limit the development of an analysis model to that of the new technology and merge it into the existing prototype using the connection parameters determined at the hand of the knowledge models. This approach was implemented for the design of a next-generation system iron. The approach enabled easy collection of data and automatic model verification, demonstrating its capability to reduce complexity in product development.
