In this paper a research project, which aims to develop a model for window selection of residential buildings to assist consumers, designers and contractors for their understanding the effects of new window products and their performance implications, was introduced. The objective of the project was to facilitate the selection of the appropriate window system, which enables energy and cost benefits while providing user comfort conditions of residential buildings in different climates of Turkey. IDEF0 function modeling method was used to describe the phases and functions of the research project. IDEF0 helps to demonstrate the inputs, outputs, controls and mechanisms affecting the formulated functions or activities and the interrelations among them. The final step will be to develop a relational database management system (RDBMS), which provides the indication of the best window option for a particular case.
