Introduction to FMI

Written by: Garron Fish – Chief Engineer Function Mock-up Interface (FMI) is a standard used for model exchange and co-simulation of dynamic models. FMI is useful because it is tool independent (i.e. the standard is not controlled by one tool vendor) and is well supported by many popular simulation tools (91 tools so far). So the read more
