[Bldg-sim] Automatic Generation of Baseline Models

I think you need to define "automatically" carefully.
DesignBuilder does a fair amount of the work and Simergy intends to do something similar.
As an example, the proper ASHRAE 90.1 EER / COP is not known until you actually run the simulation and find out the capacity.  It seems to me that some of the criteria must be ascertained from a successful simulation before you can have a complete Baseline.
Another example that has been discussed in this forum  is calculating the proper fan and pump pressure rise to comply with 90.1

I am hoping the building simulation community can help answer a question for me. What software packages out there automatically generate baseline models for the ASHRAE 90.1 Energy Cost Budget Methodology or Appendix G? Thanks.
