Based on the concept model of an office building in Chongqing area, it explores the method and process on how to select and group different strategies during the early stages of design. A total of 4608 simulations were run to consider the combinations of different design strategies. By comparing and analyzing the simulation results, it identified the most effective factors, and the factors set for the best practice case. The sensitivity tool developed on the simulation results is visual, user-friendly, and can aid architects and policy-makers for decisionmaking at an early stage.
