Models are important tools in any complex cognitive activity. Modeling, which is an act of structuring and simplifying information, is a bottleneck and a significant barrier in most model-based engineering approaches. This paper presents an approach to question driven modeling as an enabler of model-based design reasoning. It is based on scenario activity modeling and utilization of product data management (PDM) technology to manage the information objects that are created and used in the scenario activities. Tests of question-driven modeling have been performed on an industrial case and the tentative results are promising.
