Abstract: This paper shows a way to make complex buildingsimulation tools more accessible, by allowing users to input only a restricted set of variables and by condensing the results in easy-to understand tables and graphs. A software structure is presented that enables an easy set-up of specific tools for building product manufacturers (each product-manufacturer combination gets a dedicated tool). The main characteristics of the new development and of the resulting dedicated software tools are presented. Practical examples are given including screenshots of the interface and the post-processing.
