A Building schedule is a combination of a schedule duration and desired temperatures. It is something that can be predefined for a week, and can be modified during the week to accommodate a change the building wants to implement in the schedule. Once set up, the system level device (AHU/RTU) which is controlled by the CCU, supplies the required to meet the set desired temperatures only during the set schedule duration which is also known as the setpoint or occupied mode. Post building schedule duration the system level device (AHU/RTU) would relax itself and move to the setback mode, where usually the desired temperatures are much relaxed than the scheduled duration or setpoint mode.
Note: Once a building schedule is set all the zones in the building would start following the building schedule, unless a zone schedule is set for zones particularly.
