Simulations for BSM predictions at the LHC will be a difficult task, because precise predictions require to take into account QCD effect like initial and final state radiation and hadronization, as well as a thorough simulation of the detector. Although very powerful tools exist to cover this chain completely and in a reliable way, the number of implementations of specific BSM models is an often tedious and error-prone task, and thus the number of available model implementations is rather limited. I will present a new framework, based on the Mathematica package FeynRules, which allows to develop, test, and validate new physics models in a user friendly way. The package is equipped with a set of interfaces to various matrix element generators (MadGraph/MadEvent, CalcHep, Sherpa and FeynArts), which allow to implement any Lagrangian-based BSM model into these tools in an automated and robust way, hence streamlining the whole chain from model building to detector simulation
