ISO 16484-3:2005 specifies the requirements for the overall functionality and engineering services to achieve building automation and control systems. It defines terms, which shall be used for specifications and it gives guidelines for the functional documentation of project/application specific systems. It provides a sample template for documentation of plant/application specific functions, called BACS points list.
The informative function block examples explain a method to display the referenced functions in system documentation; they do not standardize the method for programming functions and applications.
ISO 16484-3:2005 covers requirements and definitions regarding BACS and application software, generic functions for plant/project specific applications and engineering functions for building controls and operations. It provides communication functions for the integration of other dedicated special system processes.
ISO 16484-3:2005 defines a method for specifying the procurement specifications containing all essential elements required for the operational functioning of a BACS. The successful installation and operation of a BACS requires that its procurement be based on a complete and accurate functional specification.
