Fort Leonard Wood, MO has two separate Utility Monitoring and Control Systems UMCSs that remotely monitor and supervise hundreds of building control systems. The garrison is currently considering whether it would best to merge the two existing systems into a single, integrated UMCS. However, coordinating the operation of these separate systems is a significant issue that will affect the garrisons decision on how to move forward. This work reviewed and analyzed the installations building automation technology, related industry standards, utility metering requirements, and market trends, and made specific recommendations to outline a path forward to configure a single installation-wide UMCS with a front-end that provides DPW access to perform supervisory monitoring and control functions including access to utility metering data.
