Abstract: Software performance engineering deals with the consideration of quantitative analysis of the behaviour of software systems from the early development phases in the life cycle. This paper summarizes in a semiformal and illustrative way our proposal for a suitable software performance engineering process. We try to integrate in a very pragmatic approach the usual object oriented methodology - supported with UML language and widespread CASE tools - with a performance modelling formalism, namely stochastic Petri nets. A simple case study is used to describe the whole process.
