At the moment I am trying to create an OSM file with high level inputs using open studio SDK. It is pretty clear from the documentation that SubSurfaces represent a window. However, I am unable to set it up as a window that can be opened. Any ideas on how to go about achieving it would be much appreciated.

See if this question from last week helps. The OpenStudio "SubSurface" object has a field for SurfaceType. There are a number of options for that field including both "FixedWindow" and "OperableWindow". In OpenStudio the only difference it makes which of these two you choose is if you have different default constructions assigned for one type vs. another. But a number of measures have been written that use the SuBSurfaceType to determine which windows are intended to be open.
