Smart Control and Analysis


The SCAN project aimed to develop a cloud-based platform that improves operational building performance by integrating BMS, AMR and other building data into performance models to optimise building operation, diagnose problems, virtually assess improvement options and ‘calibrate’ models of retrofit design.

IES-SCAN is a customisable web based  portal and integrated data environment  for Energy and Facility Managers. It provides  an integrated environment for predictive  and descriptive modeling of buildings and  portfolios through an operational data  analysis platform complete with capability  for energy forecasting, simulation and  optimisation via virtual experimental design.

The IES-SCAN web portal provides a link  between AMR and BMS technology and  IES’s market leading Virtual Environment  (VE) desktop software. With its advanced  data analysis and energy simulation tools  IES-SCAN and the VE desktop software  combine to provide a unique set of  capabilities for monitoring, managing, and  comparing building energy use over time.

From dynamic visualisation of AMR and  BMS data to predictive simulation, digital  commissioning and measurement &  verification, IES-SCAN provides a range of  techniques and processes for the collection,  organisation, analysis and interpretation  of data. It reveals patterns, problems,  key variables and relationships, leading  ultimately to fresh insights and better  strategic FM decision making.
