In the manufacturing industries, CAE analysis results are frequently required during the product development process for design verification. CAE data which include all related information of an analysis is, however, not efficiently shared among engineers because CAE data size is in general very large to deal with. At first, we represent a proposed lightweight format which is capable to include all the types of CAE analysis results and to support hierarchical data structure. Since each CAE system has different data structures of its own, a translator which translates to the proposed format is also represented. Unlike the design environment with CAD system, many CAE systems are used in a manufacturing company because many sorts of analysis are performed usually for a product design. Thus, lots of CAE results are generated and occupy huge size within storage, and they make it harder to manage or share many CAE results efficiently. A multi-CAE management system which is able to share many types of CAE data simultaneously using lightweight format is proposed in this paper. Finally, an implementation of the system for this will be introduced.
