Closes August 31st

The building simulation industry is in the process of making a steady shift
towards connected databases and web technologies for the design, analysis,
and operation of built environments. Consequently, the end-user must work
with a multitude of unrelated data dictionaries, schemas, and file formats
to represent building information for simulation.

The IBPSA-USA Building Data Exchange (BDE) Committee has been set up to
convene the many stakeholders to identify current barriers to data
exchange, and if necessary, facilitating the development of standard data
models will help overcome some of the key barriers to greater adoption of
building performance modeling outlined in USDOE BTO’s Emerging Technologies
Draft Research and Development document, namely – improving value
proposition, increasing accuracy, making time available to develop core
modeling capabilities, and facilitating end-to-end workflow automation.

One of the committee's first activity is outreach to the building
simulation community at large to assess the current state of data exchange
in practice and promote information exchange about current trends in data
exchange. This outreach will begin with a series of surveys and webinars.

Our initial survey as available at: *https://forms.gle/tbni3B2CNKxC9sdy9*

We will be collecting responses from the survey until *August 31, 2020.* At
that time we will conglomerate the results and produce a report with a
summary of the findings. The report will be a publicly available document

If you have any questions on the survey or about the IBPSA-USA Building
Data Exchange (BDE) Committee pleas email *bde at ibpsa.us* <bde at ibpsa.us>
