Using Schedules for Design and Analysis Revit mep

Scheduling building components to provide information on construction documents or to keep track of model components and materials are not the only uses for schedules in Revit. Using schedules to analyze the performance of MEP systems in relation to the building model can help you make design decisions. The ability to see and manipulate the information directly in Revit
can improve the efficiency of your design processes.
When it comes to analysis, the focus is mainly on the Space objects in your model. Space objects hold a lot of energy analysis-related information either by direct input, input from third-party analysis, or as a result of the characteristics of components associated with the spaces. Understanding
the type of information you can retrieve from spaces during the design process is the key to developing schedules that are most useful to your workflow.
Analysis can be as simple as checking to see whether the components you are using meet the engineering requirements or standards around which you are designing. This often requires that you manually set the requirement information property of your spaces. Selecting each space and accessing its properties to input this information is an inefficient practice
