The FMC Stencils are templates and extensions to existing general purpose drawing applications like Visio or OpenOffice Drawing. This offers basic tool support for creating Fundamental Modeling Concpets (FMC) diagrams like Block diagrams, Petri nets and Entity-Relation diagrams (ERD).
The FMC Stencils for Visio 5 and OpenOffice are very basic. That's why the FMC Visio Stencils for Visio 2000 and newer are recommended as they offer the most features and get maintained. The development of the FMC Visio Stencils can also be followed at SourceForge.

There are some known problems with the FMC stencils when installing them on newer Windows/Visio Versions. Therefore we are currently working on a new FMC Visio Stencil version. As a first workaround we offer a stripped-down version of the stencils. It consists of the Visio templates and stencils of version 2.1.1, without any enhancements like the consistency checker or the simulation tool for Petri nets. To install just run this installer. It puts the templates and stencils into a folder you can choose during the installation. Afterwards you have 4 possibilities to work with the FMC Visio Stencils:
Help for the FMC Visio stencils is included in the bundle for Visio 2000 or higher but is also available online. You can view the FMC stencils help here.
