In this paper a basic concept of simulation planning with the use of the characteristic-property-model is presented. The used characteristic-property-model has been extended with context factors to describe the current development situation. Based on the research results, a relational database structure has been developed. This structure contains characteristics and properties as well as some context factors. In addition an assignment to a single part has been created. The objective of this structure is its possibility to be available in PDM-Systems. Finally this structure has been implemented in a PDM-System to present its possible application. This application consists of automated data integration of parameterized CAD-files into the PDM-System and a graphic display of the current status of a part in terms of the current simulation status.

Keywords: PDM-system, property validation, data processing
