An engineering-oriented performance model of a computation is developed by extending the concept of a computation structure to cover the performance costs appropriate to software modeling. The model allows both serial and parallel (multiprocessor) configurations, and the evaluation of both time and space parameters for alternate realizations. Abrief discussion on the use of the model as a mechanism to guide the performance optimization of programs is included.
