In this paper we present free tools for model-based optimal input design and parameter estimation. The discussed tool-chain is tailored for the needs of small-and medium sized companies. Its programming core is based on Scilab and the JModelica platform and features input design (DOE), optimal control problems (OCP), and parameter estimation. Finally, the entire tool-chain concept is tested via simulation of a cart and pendulum system.
