Title: Process model for the creation and maintenance of the BIM4BEMS model
This report describes the validation of predefined use cases, documentation of a test building, development of a process model. The latter includes model set up, maintenance, and its application to a test building, in which a prototypical implementation of the BIM4BEMS framework will be deployed.
A medium size office has been selected as a test building. The architectural and operational documents of the building have been obtained from facility management as well as through on-site visits by project team members.
The required workflows for setting up and maintenance of the BIM4BEMS model have been developed. The involved actors together with the relevant tasks and their logical sequences have been defined and represented in the business process modeling notation (BPMN).
Partial building models of the test building have been created to develop the process model. Plant data collection has been initiated. Sample data have been visualized and analyzed. Data loggers have been deployed in the test building to collect data about indoor environmental conditions in rooms.
