Most concepts of systems engineering (SE) offer a systematic approach to the adaptation of procedures, tools, and standards toward an information-oriented problem in order to analyze, to design, to develop, to manage and to finally implement an effective and a pragmatic integrated information technology solution. This paper proposes a systems engineering framework for integrating information technology (IT) in building design and development. The system view is based on SE good practice and corresponding SE standards. All lifecycle for systems development is covered ranging from the operational concept to operation and maintenance and disposal. The paper is focused mainly at the requirement engineering levels and validation verification issues. In addition, this paper involves a case-study with an important setup where the simulated results are obtained within the use of distributed control and building performance simulation software by run-time coupling. The case-study is also developed in an effective way to illustrate the integration of IT in building design.
