Appendix B-1: Model Use: Monitor System Performance

Monitor System Performance

Using analytical models and sensor data of a facility to evaluate and model the overall functional performance of facility systems, e.g., structural, mechanical, electrical, plumbing, security, and fire protection.

Potential Value:

  • Reduced operational cost and environmental impact by ensuring that the facility is operating to specified design and sustainable standards
  • Improved system performance through analytics of operational performance
  • Investigate “what if” scenarios to evaluate alternatives for a facility

Resources Required:

  • Building Systems Analysis Software (Energy, Lighting, Mechanical, Other)
  • Model of the architecture and related systems in a format for input into analysis┬ápackages

Team Competencies Required:

  • Ability to understand and manipulate CMMS and building control systems with Record Model
  • Ability to understand typical equipment operation and maintenance practices
  • Ability to manipulate, navigate, and review a 3D Model

Selected Resources:

  • Ayat E. Osman, Robert Ries. ” Optimization For Cogeneration Systems in Buildings Based on Life Cycle Assessment” May 2006,
