Hello everyone,

Is it okay to create multiple EMS calling managers inside a measure or should I only create a single calling manager and attach programs with multiple calls to addProgram?

Either approach will work. If you go the route of having multiple programs referenced by the same calling manager, they will all obviously have the same calling point. With different calling managers, each program can have a different calling point. That may or may not be flexibility that you need.

Thanks for your feedback. I'm using multiple calling managers and was curious to see if any previous managers would get overwritten. It makes sense that they do not.

there are OpenStudio Measures of the EMS documentation examples here which can be useful as a reference.
