The reasons for such a usage scenario are manifold: The simulation is intended to be used as a black-box tool by non simulation specialists; a component vendor (electric drives; pneumatic or hydraulic components; etc.) likes to demonstrate the performance of his components in the context of a simulation or the model developer may hide model details.
If a model development tool includes code generation the model specific simulator can be setup fully automatic. However; a GUI (graphical user interface) for such a simulator must be developed manually. We developed a tool which automatically generates a simulator GUI from a Modelica model and data definition.
