A systematic approach to error control and mesh adaptation for optimal control of systems governed by PDEs is presented. Starting from a coarse mesh, the finite element spaces are successively enriched in order to construct suitable discrete models. This process is guided by an a posteriori error estimator which employs sensitivity factors from the adjoint equation. We consider different examples with the stationary Navier-Stokes equations as state equation.
