This study shows how to utilize the CATIA V6 Dynamic Behavior Modeling (DBM) software environment for the purpose of co-simulation of physical models. The implementation of a co-simulation using Building Controls Virtual Test Bed (BCVTB) is demonstrated and the pros and cons are discussed. Further the methods for FMI export and import in CATIA are explored with respect to implementing a co-simulation either in CATIA itself or other host programs. The two approaches are displayed by implementing
