Webinar: Facility Operations: Journey from Situational Awareness to Operational Intelligence: A University of Maryland Case Study

The purpose of this webinar is to use real-world examples to demonstrate the value of data-driven operational intelligence in facilities environments. The webinar will outline the high-level value propositions of data integration, data access, and analytics but the primary goal is to showcase proven operational intelligence strategies, including:

  • Integrating a Geospatial Information System (GIS) with SCADA and BAS data sources to provide complete transparency into utility distribution across the campus;
  • Integrating cloud-hosted room reservation systems and BAS to schedule HVAC equipment to run, on an as-needed basis, and to share how this initiative has been approved for a major rebate program offered through a state-sponsored energy efficiency program;
  • Streamlining continuous monitoring to maximize value by only deploying high-impact algorithms for anomaly identification and fault detection in air handling units, chillers, pumps, and other HVAC system components.
  • Maintaining a secure operational technology environment with continuous cybersecurity evaluations that include penetration testing and vulnerability assessments.

Learning Objectives:
Identify objectives and use cases that will meet individual university needs and hot the data will actually define previously unknown priorities.
Identify the requirements and differences between situational awareness and operational intelligence.
IT/OT – How to leverage IT security best practices to secure the operational control systems.
The value of integration of real-time data with Geo-Spatial Platforms such as ESRI ARCGIS
