FDS and BIG-EU have founded a new working group

FDS (Facility Data Standard) and the BACnet Interest Group Europe (BIG-EU) announce that they started a joint working group.

The main objective is the evaluation of opportunities to exchange data between building automation and facility services to establish a common data-interface.

In the first two meetings, the global importance of this goal was identified and existing specifications like ASHRAE 223p (designation and classification of semantic tags for building data) have been discussed and reviewed.

?Connecting building automation and facility services offers new potential savings – economically as well as ecologically?, characterizes Johannes Bepler from the Hailo Digital Hub the benefits of this data-exchange. He adds: ?If e. g. the meeting information can be taken from a calendar, the expected waste volume can be forecast based upon the number of people attending and from empirical values. This allows for a cleaning on demand to empty the waste bins only if necessary or to provide other cleaning services when required?.

Frank Schubert, treasurer in the executive board of the BACnet Interest Group Europe, adds: ?With this working group we want to start a global collaboration between Building Automation and Facility Services. Combining these two markets and players offers a lot of opportunities for smart, reliable and sustainable buildings?.

?Transformation in our industry is extremely complex, software integrations expensive to implement, and requires very highly skilled resources?, tells Daniel Messer, President & CEO of FDS. ?Without standards and interoperability, only the largest FMS companies will be able to take advantage of it. This joint effort is a nice example of the cooperation that is needed between different industries.?

Currently the working group meets approx. every two months in a video-conference.

Interested persons are more than welcome to join!

The BACnet Interest Group Europe (BIG-EU) promotes the use of the global BACnet communication standard ISO 16484-5 in building automation and security technology in Europe. It was founded in 1998 by 18 building automation companies and today has over 130 members from various European countries and the USA. The goals of the BIG-EU are, on the one hand, the representation of European interests in the further development of the BACnet standard, the exchange of information with the ASHRAE committee responsible for BACnet SSPC 135 as well as the cooperation with other organizations of building automation and facility management. The activities include joint marketing, training and qualification offers as well as the development of technical guidelines.
