This advanced tutorial describes the process for developing residential measures and testing residential building models. Reasons for wanting to develop residential measures include: customizing any of the existing residential modeling algorithms or adding new technology models.

At this point in the tutorial, it is assumed that you have checked out a new branch that is up-to-date with the master branch of the OpenStudio-BuildStock repository. Optionally, you may have created a new project folder (i.e., copied an existing project folder) and modified the set of tsv files in its housing_characteristics folder.

If your changes are intended to be merged into the master branch of the OpenStudio-BuildStock repository, a pull request review is required.
