Growing flexibility along with conversion, growing employee productivity and improvements in security are increasingly become the focus of interest in state-of-the-art buildings. Energy efficiency is a further essential aspect, which is associated with factors such as lower utilization costs. A modern and integrated building automation system is necessary to fulfill these demands. The engineering process provides the basis for developing such systems. However, today's engineering process exhibits a number of shortcomings in the demands for implementing such systems. This paper focuses on the topic, describes today's engineering process of building automation systems and identifies its deficits. It also reports on two approaches designed to largely eliminate the deficits. These approaches have been proved and tested in a reference project, which is also outlined.
