I am trying to get the PMV report. But the measure ask me for Clothing Insulation Schedule. There are not any value or option from the drop down options. Same for Air Velocity Schedule. Do I have to import or create those schedules?

You can make work efficiency, clothing insulation, and air velocity schedules in the GUI as shown below. You will likley need to change the default schedule values that appear when you first make the new schedule.

Then you will see them as choices in the measure. The measure only shows schedules with the correct type limits for each argument.

There is a bug in the measure. Sometimes it doesn't show you the schedules after you have created them. I have to remove and add the measure until it shows me the schedules.

Thanks, I'll look into that. Somehow it isn't getting access to the updated model.

Should the work efficiency schedule be a fractional schedule? And if so, should it be equivalent to the activity level schedule in "mets"? For example, if I want to model a constant 1.1 activity level, would I create a fractional schedule equal to 1.1 throughout the year?

The latter two schedule fields still seem to be failing. I tried just using fractional schedules, and I could select them in all fields, but then it failed to apply those schedules to the people objects. I would love to use this measure in the future, but for now I can't get it to work.

This here link seems to refer to work efficiency as a true efficiency, i.e. a value of zero means all activity goes to heat, a value of unity means all activity goes to work.
