This thesis describes the implementation of Robust Design and Design of Experiments methodologies with the FMI Microsoft Excel Add-in (FMIE). FMIE allows engineers to use Microsoft Excel in collaboration with simulation models created in other software and exported as FMUs. A choice of pre- and post processing methods are implemented as Excel macros for use with the FMIE. Their functionality are demonstrated with a non trivial parameter optimization of a truck model created with Dymola. The development of the truck model and integral parameters are explained within this thesis. The Excel macros are used to find a design point that is sufficiently good in aspect to two response factors. The stability of this design point with aspect to a noise factor and small variance of the design factors is determined.
