The need for optimization of the product manufacturing cycle and data management resulted in the creation of the model-based definition technology. The beneficial impact in most processes (CAD, CAE, CAPP, CAM, etc.) of a product manufacturing cycle, made the MBD technology implemented in various industries. The following paper has the purpose of highlighting the benefits and limitations of the current MBD capabilities and makes its impact on the industrial collaboration known by summarizing the communication file formats, which support this technology. Special interest is attributed to lightweight collaboration files, especially 3D PDFs, which are capable to deliver information and data to the domains of a company inside or outside of the manufacturing cycle and support all the necessary downstream activities of the product.
