OK, so I am a bit confused about "create baseline" measures. There is one I can find under Whole Building/Space Types and it is called "Create Baseline Building" I know how to invoke this (Apply Measure Now), but unfortunately it goes no further than ASHRAE 90.1-2013.

Then there seems to be a "Create Performance Rating Method Baseline Building" method in the openstudio-standard GEM, which might (or not?) go to ASHRAE 90.1-2016, but which I do not know how to invoke (do I have to call this from within a custom measure?). Has anyone successfully used any (which?) measure along these lines to create an ASHRAE 90-1-2016 Appendix G Performance Rating Baseline?

I know there is also a "Space Type and Construction Set Wizard" measure, and it does go to ASHRAE 90.1-2016, but as the name says, it ends at Space Types and Constructions, i.e. does not include Lighting or HVAC.

Any enlightenment would be much appreciated!

The measure, "Create Baseline Building", currently only supports creating 90.1-2013 baseline models following its App G modeling rules.

The measure, "Space Type and Construction Set Wizard", is unrelated to the ASHARE 90.1 Appendix G.

Our team is working on the measure for 90.1-2019 Appendix G Performance Rating Method (PRM). This work has not been done yet. The development branch is AppendixG_Dev. We currently do not have the ruby measure in the BCL for this.
