FMI Add-In is the perfect tool for batch simulations such as parameter sweeps or sensitivity analyses – providing insights into the impact of component variation on system behavior early in the design cycle. Different simulation cases are run in parallel on multiple cores on the computer to generate results fast. All the powerful functionality of Excel is then available for post-processing the results. Customized and automated workflows can be developed using a Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) scripting interface.
“As with all Modelon Deployment Suite tools, our goal is to continue challenging the status quo by providing solutions that fit the needs of simulation engineers everywhere, no matter the industry. FMI standards have been proven as more than one hundred tools now support them for their models. FMI Add-In makes these models even more accessible – used within a familiar spreadsheet environment, Microsoft Excel” said Maria Henningsson, Modelon’s FMI Product Manager.
