This document aims at providing examples of implementation of SimDM. Two databases containing modeling or simulation products are explained in details. First, the STARFORMAT database devoted to MHD simulations. Second, the PDR database devoted to 1D modelling of interstellar clouds. We present how the results of these simulations have been mapped on the Simulation Data Model. We also present in each case, the pipeline we used to simplify the updates of the databases each time the codes behind the simulation evolves or that new simulations have to be added in the databases. An overview of Millenium is also presented.
