I was modifying a DOE prototype downloaded from BCL in Openstudio. I came into some errors when I deleted some zones (cause I wanted to reduce the building size and room quantity), I noticed that there are EnergyManagementSystems(EMS) remained in the files(when I checked in text), so I deleted it and the simulation runs. My question is, how comes that I have to editing in text while I was using an Openstudio software? Is there way that I can modify the EMS in Openstudio?

You cannot edit EMS through the OpenStudio Graphical User Interface (GUI), also known as the 'OpenStudio App'.

You can edit EMS with the OpenStudio Application Programming Interface (API), which you can do through ruby scripts or console.

Here is some example code in openstudio-standards for creating and editing EMS with the OpenStudio API.
