(Your posting format is difficult to respond to as it doesn't wrap
properly and you should avoid top posting)

My experience has been that FBP has been used extensively and for quite
some time in automotive, aerospace and general controls industries via
Matlab's Simulink which allows graphical design, editing, simulation and
testing, with subsequent code generation to low level (C, C++, ADA, ...).

Most of these users are Mechanical/Electrical engineers who are not
particularly adept with modern C++(IMHO of course).
