    An Energy‐Aware, Agent‐Based Maintenance‐Scheduling Framework to Improve Occupant Satisfaction
    (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2016-03-31) Song, Xinyi ; College of Design
    Facility management has become increasingly challenging due to complex building systems that generate more diverse and complex maintenance issues. Facility managers and staff must deal with many daily maintenance requests despite various limitations, such as limited budgets and staff, which can cause delay in responding to some maintenance requests. A scheduling framework is proposed in this research to assist in improving facility management efficiency. In practice, maintenance work is scheduled according to various priorities. For example, facility managers first consider the impact of each problem in terms of system failure and safety. In addition to those two factors, the framework considers both energy efficiency and occupant satisfaction. It first quantified occupant satisfaction with data from current building maintenance work. An empirical study on occupant satisfaction was done based on classical disconfirmation theory and referenced post‐occupancy evaluation (POE) research. A survey was designed to collect data to quantify occupant satisfaction. Based on the disconfirmation theory, an agent‐based model was then developed to prioritize maintenance work to achieve maximum occupant satisfaction. Subsequently, a building energy model was simulated in EnergyPlus to quantify the impact of different aspects of a faulty HVAC system on energy consumption. Finally, the framework was tested through simulation and the results showed that occupant satisfaction level and building energy efficiency were improved by 30 and 97%, respectively, when using the framework.

    Fried Augenbroe: COA Research Forum
    (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2009-10-29) Augenbroe, Godfried ; College of Design
    Since 1997, Fried Augenbroe heads the Building Technology area in the Doctoral Program in the College of Architecture at the Georgia Institute of Technology in the USA, where he teaches graduate courses and conducts research in the fields of building performance concepts and simulation, control of smart systems, e-Business, system monitoring and diagnostics. He has also established an active research record in building process studies, construction project management, web hosted collaboration, and knowledge management, dealing with the development of software tools, their interoperability and their business integration. In the field of energy modeling Augenbroe has led large building energy simulation projects for the development and application of energy saving technologies in buildings and residential construction. He has developed building energy performance metrics for large institutional real estate managers such as the General Services Administration in the US. He is also active in the development of Communities of Practice exploiting the emergence of WEB 2.0 social computing environments. As one of the first applications he is developing a CoP in healthcare design.
