Development of an Information Flow Mechanism for Commissioning
MetadataShow full item record
The present paper proposes a new information flow mechanism for commissioning and develops tools to make the proposed information flow mechanism feasible. Although many technical tools have been developed in order to reduce the amount of labor necessary for commissioning, the information needed for the application of the tools to a real building is not rationally organized. It is necessary to manage and organize the necessary information rationally for the promotion of the usage of the tools. In order to resolve the issues of the present information flow, the present paper proposes a new information flow mechanism, which is constructed using a CAD data file, for example, IFC, SXF, or gbXML, a database, for example RDBMS of HDF5, and a process modeling method IDEF0. If the information about the building is organized rationally according to the proposed mechanism, the technical tools for commissioning can be applied easily and effectively, and the human error in the commissioning process can be reduced.
