Abstract: In recent years Facilities Management (FM) has developed as a know-how-oriented service. Equally, Building Automation (BA) has attained a prime importance in the creation of optimised operations through digital systems for measurement and control. The target of future solutions is to combine the central BA systems with the FM systems for an integrative usage. Within the development of open date interfaces of the available building control systems, the present singularly used dates will be provided to services for an integrated FM. In that case the already existing services can be improved or new services can be created.
Keywords: facilities management; building automation; data interface; building control systems; service requirements; building services; building management.
