I am struggeling with how to insert infiltration rates in OS.

I can do this at Space types / General but I can also do it in Spaces/Airflow. Does one override the other? Do they add up? I think this also applies to Design Specification outdoor Air...

I am also struggeling with how to insert construction schedules in OS.

I can do this in Space Types / General, but also in Facility / Building.

I am using OS 2.4.0.

OpenStudio employs inheritance for many of its model objects. See this documentation page for a description of how the inheritance works for several common objects.

Long story short, for most building components OpenStudio will first look at the Space, then Space Type, then Story, and finally Building. In some situations, like internal gains, they can indeed be additive.
