Abstract

National Center for Energy Management and Building Technology (NCEMBT), the research arm of the National Energy Management Institute (NEMI), initiated a series of multi-year research projects related to the indoor environmental quality (IEQ), energy management, and building technology through the financial support from Department of Energy (DOE). The objectives of this paper is to demonstrate the construction of a knowledge-based resource management system (KBRMS) through the view points of data flow analysis, data collection and assimilation process, the design and development and prototype demonstration. The beta version of the KBRMS is operational. Based on the functionality, the system is divided into public and private sections with the enforcement of role-based access control (RBAC). The external public web portal displays general project information and the research-related publications while internal web portal records project-related data analysis tools, analysis results and intranet communication modules. This paper shows some summary data that are automatically calculated through the pre-defined analysis tools using MS SQL Sever stored procedures. More building measurements and occupant perception questionnaires will be collected into the system. More research results are expected through this multi-year project.
