Computer-aided engineering is widely used in various areas including manufacturing, requirement planning and product design. These specific CAE tools, here called expert tools, manipulate large amounts of data. Some of those data also need to be processed by other expert tools to allow a flexible collaboration between various experts. This article proposes an approach to exchange data of various formats manipulated by different expert tools through model-based technologies. The presented approach is validated by its implementation on an academic use case involving commercial industrial tools.
