Systems analysis is a new set of features and framework in Revit software that enables building and HVAC systems design engineering and analysis workflows to be conducted in a significantly more BIM (Building Information Modeling)-integrated, open, and extensible way. Built using EnergyPlus and OpenStudio in collaboration with the US Department of Energy (DOE) and the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), Revit systems analysis provides a fast, reliable, and—critically—entirely open and extensible way to use Revit for many kinds and variations of systems analysis workflow—from early conceptual system selection and sizing to detailed design, code compliance, and even as-built/operational energy. Note that this class is intended to provide a look under the hood of Revit systems analysis, equipping you with the knowledge to create your own custom systems analysis workflows with ease and confidence.
