Schedule Verification

DSOM has a unique feature to allow for tracking of wasted energy by mechanical system run hours. Any piece of equipment that has a schedule can be tracked against the schedule. Below is an example of a complete campus showing the different areas and buildings within the areas. For each system in each building, run hours are tracked against the administrative hours that it should be running. If the run times become excessive or over the error allowed, a red bar will appear to alert operations and administration to the system. The longer the bar, the more hours the system has exceeded the schedule.
