The paper addresses redesign/improvement of a building automation system (BAS). For the sake of simplicity, the field bus technology on KNX example and WSN technologies on IEEE.15.4/Zig.Bee basis are examined. The basic system example consists of four parts: (1) IP/KNX Gateway, (2) IP/WSN 6LoWPAN Gateway, (3) ZigBee Wireless Sensor Network, and (4) KNX Field Bus Infrastructure. A tree-like system model (and/or morphological tree) is used. The following system improvement design schemes are examined: (i) upgrade of system components (strategy 1), (ii) extension by adding an additional part (strategy 2), and (iii) combined scheme (strategy 3). Three underlaying problems are used: (a) multicriteria ranking, (b) multicriteria multiple choice problem, and (c) combinatorial synthesis. Numerical examples illustrate the redesign processes.
