The conceptual models built within BAS systems are often the effort of vigorous manual labor. A standardized language for describing our systems and equipment will make it possible for standard automated processes to replace labor-intensive manual approaches. Such automation is useful in two significant ways. First, different applications can analyze equipment system models and present them to users accurately. Second, this enables the creation of advanced intelligent automation systems that can recognize equipment systems and their data, assess external and internal conditions, and improve building operations on a continuous basis. Automated models would greatly reduce labor costs, which will make building automation more cost effective for building owners of all types.
By actively engaging in Project Haystack BASSG is helping to shape the future of building automation.
