English abstract:
User feedback offers high potential for improving comfort satisfaction and adapting processes in building operation and management. However, comfort in building zones is usually quantified using sensor devices of building automation systems while feedback of building users is only manually analyzed by facility managers. The goal of the recently started project `HumBAS´ is to combine subjective human perception and objective data originating from building automation systems to improve comfort for building users and infer recommendations for facility managers using knowledge engineering. An intuitive interface for the acquisition of human perception as well as a knowledge-based integration of objective and subjective comfort measurements are developed in order to describe an automatic process for direct consideration of user feedback and detection of problems in building management. The paper presents related work, gives an outlook on the overall project goals and addresses first results.
