This paper presents an approach to use the Functional Mockup Interface (FMI) for integration of classical controller specifications and statechart-based specifications of real-time critical message exchange protocols. The Functional Mockup Unit (FMU) is automatically generated from the specification. Using the generated FMU we are able to exploit simulation facilities as provided by Modelica/Dymola.
