In this paper we describe how ZF is using existing and upcoming Modelica standards for simulating a variety of systems in automotive industry. In particular, Modelica is employed for driveline modeling. The FMI standard is used to transport models over tool boundaries. The novel SSP standard will contribute towards interconnecting FMUs and defining complete system architectures.
