Catch Payette Building Scientist Elizabeth Galloway later this month at the 2019 ASHRAE Building Performance Analysis Conference on September 25-27, 2019 in Denver, Colorado. The goal of this conference is to promote networking and present new techniques and workflows that practitioners make better decisions during the simulation and modeling process of an entire building life cycle.
Making the Case for Custom Tool Development: In-house and Beyond
As the amount of analysis needs and the number of analysis tools grows, modelers are increasingly turning towards custom software and scripting capabilities to tie tools together. This approach has great potential to save time and money by automating workflows while simultaneously increasing quality by reducing errors. Companies value the increased productivity and efficiency of these tools. However, there can be some conflicting tensions in this new approach. How much should companies invest in these internal tools versus time on paying projects?
