I can give you the details on how to configure, create, and deploy Office but as far as what those configurations should be are up to you and your Org.

Run "setup.exe /admin"

This opens the configuration tool. All of the options are listed on the left margin of the GUI. Basic settings you will want to hit are the ones hiding the EULA, entering your product key, and whether you want the installation to be silent, passive, or normal. 

Once you've got all of your settings configured you can save them in a MSP file. There are a couple of ways to use this MSP file with Office:

1.) setup.exe /adminfile myfile.msp


2.) Place the MSP file in the Updates folder located in the Office installation files. Running setup.exe will automatically use any MSP files located in the Updates folder, so no switches will be needed.

If running setup.exe /admin doesn't work, you will need to download the Tool and place the Admin folder alongside the other installation folders: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=18968
