How to use Honeybee before designing?



If it’s possible I need help. In all videos, that Mostapha shared, he has buildings with windows and then analysis that. Can I analysis the building envelope’s and find the best situation, the size of the windows or any other glazing in related to daylight before start the design?? actually for starting to design in the better way,I want to have daylight data layers like other data ( physical programming, topography …).

I can pixelized the face and run the algorithm for every possible mode, but this way, take a long time and never have the real answer.
