The existence of multiple non-equivalent minima of the scalar potential in SUSY models both raises technical challenges and introduces interesting physics. The technical challenges are now that one has to find several minima and evaluate which is the deepest, as well as calculate the tunneling time from a false vacuum to the true vacuum. In this talk I will present studies of the vacuum stability and R-parity violating minima in a B-L extended MSSM, color and charge breaking minima in the MSSM and the technical framework used for this analysis in the form of the newly developed software package "Vevacious".
