Does anyone have experience using the "Create Baseline Building" measure in developing Appendix G models?

If so, which areas should be one's primary focus for QA/QC of the resulting models? And, more specifically, in which ways is this measure most likely to result in a baseline that is showing higher energy consumption than a proper, manually developed, baseline model?

Considering making the transition to using OpenStudio for LEED compliance modeling and would love to hear folks' thoughts on potential pitfalls of this approach.

I think you mean the "Create Performance Rating Method Baseline Building" Measure in the same gem.

Well, that did not take long to plumb the depths of my knowledge. I am using this measure, are we talking about the same thing?

Issue #1: having multiple versions of the same measure floating about and expecting users to install custom ruby gems

I am starting to be concerned that my ignorance of what exactly a gem does will keep me from properly using this (or any other) measure. In general is this the case?

Let me clear up some things:

  1. This is the measure: Create Baseline Building
  2. You don't have to install any gems to use it. See this YouTube video.
