Title: Occupant Behavior XML Schema

Abstract

This software implements the DNAS framework into an XML (eXtensible Markup Language) schema, titled "occupant behavior XML" (obXML). The obXML schema is used for the practical implementation of the DNAS framework into building simulation tools. The topology of the DNAS framework implemented in the obXML schema has a main root element OccupantBehavior, linking three main elements representing Buildings, Occupants and Behaviors. Using the schema structure, the actions of turning on an air conditioner and closing blinds provide two examples of how the schema standardizes these actions using XML. The obXML schema has inherent flexibility to represent numerous, diverse and complex types of occupant behaviors in buildings, and it can also be expanded to encompass new types of behaviors. The implementation of DNAS framework into the obXML schema will facilitate the development of occupant information modeling by providing interoperability between occupant behavior models and building energy modeling programs.
