Multicore Simulations in a Familiar Spreadsheet Environment!

Combine the visualization and data management capabilities of Microsoft Excel with multicore simulations from Modelon's FMI Add-In!

FMI Add-In, a plugin for Microsoft Excel, is a powerful simulation software tool that enables users to import and simulate Functional Mock-up Units (FMUs) in a spreadsheet environment. Customizable analysis and simulation functionality of model-based workflows is coupled with the data management and visualization capabilities available in Microsoft Excel and Visual Basic.

Benefits

  • Utilize state-of-the-art modeling tools within easy-to-access Excel
  • Exchange simulation results with ALL stakeholders through a standard Excel spreadsheet
  • Maintain flexibility and consistency through the FMI standard

Key Features

  • Import and simulate FMUs in Excel
  • Perform post processing of simulation results
  • Complete parameter sweeps and sensitivity analysis - providing insights into the impact of component variation on system behavior early in the design cycle
  • Start multi-core batch simulations with just one click
  • Automate and customize using Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) scripting interface
