The FMI Add-in for Excel (FMIE) is a commercial product from Modelon AB that enables the deployment of FMUs in Microsoft Excel. FMIE enables the user to programmatically control the add-in through Visual Basic code in Excel. This allows the implementation of custom workflows and interfaces for the user to interact and automate the tasks involved in loading; simulation and analysis of FMUs.
In this paper we present a workflow in FMIE for an automobile thermal management model FMU. The workflow utilizes Visual Basic scripts for automation and user-forms for user interaction.
