Costa, Andrea, Sterling, Raymond, Blanes, Luis M., Howley, Martin, & Keane, Marcus M. (2013). A SWOT framework to investigate the integration between building management systems and fault detection and diagnosis tools. Paper presented at the International Conference on Applied Energy (ICAE 2013), Pretoria, South Africa, 01-04 July.
This paper presents a research work carried out under the umbrella of the CASCADE project, which is a European FP7 research project which is developing facility-specific measurement-based energy action plans for the airport energy managers that are underpinned by Fault Detection Diagnosis (FDD). The paper first describes the context of the project then it focuses on Building Management Systems describing the current status of the technology and presenting an outlook on their future development. Then a Strengths Weakness Opportunity and Treads (SWOT) framework is defined with the aim of verifying the suitability of an installed BMS system to incorporate Fault Detection and Diagnosis (FDD) tools
