Although currently there are several activities that are focused on a unified way to project and administrate fieldbus systems the planning and management of these systems in the sense of a comprehensive infrastructure is not possible yet. In this paper an approach for the integration of Building Automation Systems using different fieldbus systems into the technical Facility Management shall be demonstrated. This integration is realized using standardized mechanisms like OPC technology and common object definitions for different fieldbus systems based on international standards. The paper gives an introduction into the basic models and introduces a way to solve this task.
