<p>Software performance engineering (SPE) provides an approach to constructing systems to meet performance objectives. The authors illustrate the application of SPE to an example with some real-time properties and demonstrate how to compare performance characteristics of design alternatives. They show how SPE can be integrated with design methods and demonstrate that performance requirements can be achieved without sacrificing other desirable design qualities such as understandability, maintainability, and reusability.</p>
