Abstract

Predictive Maintenance 4.0 (PdM 4.0) showed a highly positive impact on chilled water system (CWS) maintenance. This research followed the recommendations of a systematic literature review (SLR), which was performed on PdM 4.0 applications for CWS at commercial buildings. Per the SLR, and to start making an excellent PdM 4.0 program, the faults and their frequencies must be identified. Therefore, this research constructed an industry survey, which went through a pilot study, and then shared it with 761 maintenance officers in different commercial buildings. The first goal of this survey is to verify the faults reported by SLR, explore more faults, and suggest a managerial solution for each fault. The second goal is to determine the minimum and maximum frequencies of faults occurrence, while the third goal is to verify selected operational parameters, in which their data can be used in smart buildings applications. A total of 304 responses are considered in this study, which identified additional faults and provided faults solutions for all CWS components. Based on the survey outcomes, justifiable frequencies are proposed, which can be used in creating the dataset of any machine learning model, and then to control the CWS performance.
