Up to now, the nuclear shell model is rarely used in the nuclear data study because of several reasons. First, medium and heavy mass nuclei far from the shell-model cores, normally doubly magic nuclei, require a huge amount of calculation resource even in a limited shell-model space. Second, large deformation is difficult to be described in the limited model space, which is based on spherical symmetry. Third, high precision evaluation of nuclear structure data challenges the ability of the shell model. Even so, it is worth starting preliminary nuclear data investigations based on the shell model. With the present computational ability, it is possible to investigate 1000 or more nuclei in the framework of the shell model, which should be helpful for nuclear data study. In the present work, some recent shell-model investigations are briefly introduced. Based on these works, a simple nuclear force is suggested to be used in the systematic nuclear structure data study. The south-west region of 132Sn is taken as an example to show the ability of such a simple nuclear force.
