This paper presents details of developing a STEP-compliant database system which has the ability to support the implementation of product life cycle applications. Currently, most of CAD systems have the ability to generate geometrical and topological data in STEP file format. This developed STEP-compliant database management system has shown its ability to convert this generated STEP file format to database format, which is more suitable for the downstream of manufacturing applications,
