[EnergyPlus_Support] Hints and tips on how to run hundreds of similar simulations automatically?

I'm looking to come up with a method to simulate one building with hundreds to thousands of small variations occurring, the goal being to come up with a simple impact analysis model that shows what happens each time a variable, such as window to wall ratio, window glazing, building orientation, fenestration, weather, or occupancy schedule change. 

I want to be able to specify a list of inputs that I'd like to change, the increment to change each simulation by, and run these simulations (probably on amazon ec2) in the cloud. Then I'd like to translate the options into first and operational cost calculators. 

I'm trying to come up with an automated way to do this, does anyone have ideas on how to go about this problem?
