Environmental Management and Administration

Preferred Project Period:
5/10/10 - 7/30/10

Desired Education Level(s):

Project Title:
Development and Querying of AutoCAD/Energy Databases

Sponsoring Office:
Office of Administration and Resources Management-RTP

Project Overview:
Facility management and support are composed of, but not limited to, general administrative services, building operations, maintenance, engineering, utility operations, energy conservation, and environmental management systems. EPA provides management of solar-powered roofs, solar-powered street lights, laboratory space, office space, electrical equipment, generators, and countless other facility-related operations. The need for automated processes is becoming more prevalent to ensure efficiency in this management and support function.

The process of developing and querying of AutoCAD databases is widely used in the engineering arena and it is technically complex as the software functionality expands the broad scope of various facets. Under this project, the fellow will work with EPA staff to (1) review and identify electrical equipment via electrical as-built-drawings; (2) conduct research in the development of a sub-metering project; and (3) update and maintain data via an AutoCAD database. Additional work will require the fellow to research energy conservation reports in the National Energy database. The fellow's research could focus on the overall understanding of software development; data manipulation; data analysis; facility data management; and AutoCAD functionality.

Project Goals:
The fellow working on this project can expect to increase his or her knowledge of the software development lifecycle, software functionality, quality assurance review, AutoCAD drawings; purpose of AutoCAD layering function; facility data identification; facility data management; and energy conservation. Research completed under this fellowship could inform a master's thesis or other educational requirement.

Final Product of the Project:
The fellow will develop a final report summarizing his or her findings.

Project Location:
EPA Headquarters, Research Triangle Park, NC
