  • Publication number: 20240035696
    Abstract: A building system including one or more storage devices storing instructions thereon that, when executed by one or more processors, cause the one or more processors to ingest information associated with a physical asset of a building, the physical asset being one of a heating system, a ventilation system, or an air conditioning system; cross-correlate a first identifier associated with the information with a second identifier associated with a virtual asset of a graphical model of the building to determine a location of the virtual asset within the graphical model, the virtual asset corresponding to the physical asset; cause the graphical model of the building to include a representation of the information using the location of the virtual asset; and cause a display device of a user device to display the graphical model within a user interface.

  • Patent number: 11708989
    Abstract: A building management system includes a building efficiency improvement system and method configured to monitor and control subsystems and equipment for improved efficiency of operation. A user device is configured to display a user interface for monitoring and controlling one or more building equipment efficiency parameters and settings. The building efficiency management system further includes a controller configured to collect and analyze data from equipment, generate displays of the operational status and efficiency levels, generate sets of alternative equipment control algorithms based on efficiency objectives, and present users with a set of alternative equipment control algorithms displayed via graphic user interface elements on the user device. The user device further provides a means to select and implement an alternate equipment control algorithm.

  • Patent number: 11480932
    Abstract: A method for applying semantic information to data in a building management system (BMS). The method includes receiving unrecognized data from equipment associated with the BMS, the unrecognized data comprising a first value and an associated device identifier; providing the unrecognized data as input to a first learning model to generate a first output, the first output indicative of semantic information corresponding to the first value evaluated individually; providing the unrecognized data as input to a second learning model to generate a second output, the second output indicative of semantic information corresponding to the first value evaluated in context of a second value associated with the device identifier; and applying semantic information to the unrecognized data based on the first output and the second output. The method allows for users to configure building management systems with automatically generated semantic data tags.

  • Publication number: 20220271967
    Abstract: A building management system comprising a database storing relationships between a plurality of building objects representing building equipment and building spaces and a configuration tool. The configuration tool is configured to obtain configuration data associated with a first building object of the plurality of building objects and use the relationships between the plurality of building objects to identify a second building object having a stored relationship with the first building object. The configuration tool is also configured to automatically generate configuration data for the second building object based on the configuration data associated with the first building object and the relationship with the second building object.

  • Patent number: 11402116
    Abstract: A method of predicting a time of effect of an intervention of a point of a Building Management System (BMS). The method includes evaluating a first input to determine how an intervention of a point will affect a variable of the BMS; predicting a time at which the intervention will affect the variable of the BMS; presenting feedback to a user via a user interface before implementing the intervention of the point, the feedback comprising the time at which the intervention of the point is predicted to affect the variable; and implementing the intervention or a cancellation of the intervention based at least in part on a second input from the user or an automated response to the feedback. The method allows for users to determine whether to implement proposed interventions in real-time.

  • Patent number: 10317863
    Abstract: A building management system includes a database and a controller. The database stores data points, and the controller receives a selection of a control group defining a process variable. The controller further identifies a plurality of components of the building management system that operate to affect the process variable, and identifies a temporal order in which the identified components affect the process variable. The controller obtains data points associated with each of the identified components, and generates a graphical user interface that displays the obtained data points arranged in the temporal order.

  • Publication number: 20170213303
    Abstract: A fault resolution system includes a fault triage system, a fault resolutions database, and a user device. The fault triage system generates rankings for a plurality of faults detected in a building system and prioritizes the detected faults according to the rankings. The fault resolutions database stores one or more potential resolutions for each of the detected faults and a success rate for each of the potential resolutions. The user device receives the prioritized faults, the potential resolutions, and the success rates from the fault triage system and provides resolution feedback to the fault triage system indicating whether the potential resolutions were successful in resolving the detected faults. The fault triage system uses the resolution feedback to update the success rates stored in the fault resolutions database.
