The Functional Mock-up Interface (FMI) is an open standard for model exchange and co-simulation of dynamic models on the system and component level. FMI addresses a critical pain point in model-based systems engineering: the ability to share models between tools, and to deploy models in an easy-to-use way to development engineers. FMI is supported by more than 60 commercial simulation tools.
The FMI Toolbox for MATLAB/Simulink and FMI Toolbox Coder Add-on provide extensive support for FMI on the MATLAB/Simulink platform. FMI Toolbox supports all major workflows in control system development and system integration for virtual prototyping, from design and sizing to optimization and MIL/SIL/HIL validation & verification testing.
The FMI Add-in for Excel provides powerful support for FMI in Microsoft Excel. FMI Add-in enables efficient and customizable analysis model-based workflows in a spread-sheet environment, with all data management and visualization capabilities of Microsoft Excel and Visual Basic at hand.
