Abstract: Analogy between the Microelectronics and Building industries is explored with the focus on design, commissioning and operation processes. Some issues found in the realisation of low energy buildings are highlighted and techniques gleaned from microelectronics proposed as possible solutions. Opportunities identified include: adoption of a more actions for different modes of operation (accelerating, braking c.f heating, cooling etc) and respond appropriately in fault conditions. Figure 1 illustrates in simple terms the key elements of the automotive system. There are sufficient similarities with building systems to make comparison worthwhile. integrated process, use of standard cells, inclusion of controls and operational code in the design, generation of building commissioning tests from simulation, generation of building operational control code (including self-test) from simulation, inclusion comfort indoor environment dash outdoor environment uControl of variation and uncertainties in the design process, use of quality processes such as indices to represent design robustness and formal continuous improvement methods. The possible integration of these techniques within a building information model (BIM) flow is discussed and some examples of enabling technologies given. safety economy emissions wheel Exhaust pedals traction speed pressure Temp.
