Need to create model that automates series of 15 steps for 1000+ datapoints

Hello all,

I need to create a model or script (using either the model builder function or a python script) that automates a series of steps involving data management and spatial analyst tools and applies them to imported Digital Elevation Models (DEMs) and lat long data points.

What is the best way to way to automate these steps so I can just run this model for each datapoint (of which there are over 1000) as opposed to processing each point individually and going through the tedious series of steps?

Any input is appreciated, and many thanks in advance.
