Nature of problem:
Comprehensive studies of supersymmetric models beyond the MSSM is considerably complicated by the number of different tasks that have to be accomplished, including the calculation of the mass spectrum and the implementation of the model into tools for performing collider studies, calculating the dark matter density and checking the compatibility with existing collider bounds (in particular from the Higgs searches).

Solution method:
The presented scripts create a framework for the study of SUSY models using the public codes SARAH, SPheno, WHIZARD, CalcHep, MicrOmegas, HiggsBounds and SSP. This includes the download, the configuration and the installation of the different tools as well as a script to automatically implement new models into these codes.

Unusual features:
The study of extended SUSY models is considerably simplified, with the precision of the spectrum calculation matching the precision usually achieved for the MSSM.

Running time:
Tested on Lenovo X220: The download, configuration and building the tools takes 7min and 40s. The time needed for the implementation of new models depends on the model under consideration: It takes 42min for the MSSM including the compilation of all parts.
