Different simulation and modeling tools often use their own definition of how a model is represented and how model data is stored. Complications arise when try- ing to model parts in one tool and importing the resulting model in another tool or when trying to ver- ify a result by using a different simulation tool. The Functional Mock-up Interface (FMI) is a standard to provide a unified model execution interface. In this paper we present an implementation of the FMI spec- ification in the platform, where support for import and export of FMI compliant models has been added. The FMI import interface is written in Python and offers a complete mapping of the FMI C API. also offers a set of Pythonic convenience methods for interacting with the model in an object-oriented manner. In addition, a connection to the simulation environment Assimulo which is part of is offered to allow for simulation of models following the FMI specification using state of the art numerical integrators. Genera- tion of FMI compliant models from will also be discussed.
