How to change the ventilation in time?

Hello,

I am quite new in working with OpenStudion and EnergyPlus so I am not quite familiar with the software. I see that there are some measurements already developed to change the ventilation rate by a percentage, which basically adjusts the outdoor air flow per person value of each zone in the building. However this is done for the entire simulation time. I can add a fractional schedule to the Design Specification Outdoor Air Object. But I would like to create a measure that does this for me for any model. I was wondering if anyone had some suggestions on how to do this? I have seen measure already written to add and shift schedules, but as this is not a zone or space, I am not really sure how to do it.

Thank you

Luis
