We present a general procedure to decompose Beyond the Standard Model (BSM) collider signatures into Simplified Model Spectrum (SMS) topologies. Our method provides a way to cast BSM predictions for the LHC in a model independent framework, which can be directly confronted with the relevant experimental constraints. Our python implementation currently focusses on supersymmetry searches with missing energy, for which a large variety of SMS results from ATLAS and CMS are available. We have collected these results into a database, enabling us to quickly confront any BSM theory with about 200 simplified models results. Originating in the LHC world we wish to extend beyond hadron colliders, exploiting also the information about BSM physics contained in precision measurements, or dark matter searches. As show-case examples we will discuss application of our procedure to one specific supersymmetric model, show how the limits constrain the model, and point out regions in parameter space still unchallenged by the current SMS results. Given experimental hints at new physics, it is our ultimate goal to build the next standard model in a bottom-up fashion from the experimental SMS results from several experiments.
