This chapter brings together case studies of building occupant behavior modeling applications from around the world. The purpose is to illustrate the range and types of applications, contribute to a framework for classifying types of applications, and explore which modeling approaches are most appropriate for which contexts. To determine which model is most appropriate for which context, three dimensions are particularly important: the stakeholder and their problem (Who? Why?); the building type, services, and provisions (What?); and the process stage and relevant tools (When?). The case study summaries answer these questions and provide succinct discussions of the adopted modeling strategy. The write-ups also include pointers to full publications that provide further details for readers who wish to learn more. This chapter aims to provide a framework for determining (1) when occupant behavior becomes important for making decisions about buildings, (2) which tools are most appropriate for specific applications, and (3) what insights emerge from practical experience with these tools. The cases summarized in Table 8-1 place these concerns into context.
