A Data and Knowledge Management System for Intelligent Buildings
MetadataShow full item record
This paper describes a novel prototype of lifecycle information management and knowledge utilization of intelligent buildings. There is a comprehensive summary of the types of information and knowledge of intelligent buildings in their lifecycles based on literature review and professional experience. With the prototype, it originally introduces the concept of lifecycle information management and knowledge utilization of intelligent buildings. The lifecycle of intelligent buildings is divided into three main stages: design, construction, and utilization. The concept is then developed to an integrated model for web-based information supply and sharing, and some key points of the construction of an information platform and a knowledge system portal are discussed. It is expected that the integrated model can not only effectively support the information management and knowledge utilization of intelligent buildings, but also supply necessary data to digital cities.
