To develop a five year plan for NFRC's research needs for review by the Research Subcommittee, the Research and Technology Committee and the Board of Directors. This research plan will consider the following factors:
1) Improving the accuracy of existing procedures, where needed.
2) Making sure all fenestration products can be addressed by NFRC procedures.
3) Developing procedures for new indices (fading, AEP, comfort, etc.).
This task group will suggest the scope and priorities of NFRC research, and develop a process for better incorporating research results into NFRC's procedures.
