In a performance test, the standards for
assessing its test results are not sufficiently determined due to the lack of a
well-structured test developing methods which are found in a functionality test.
By extending the established workflow structure, this approach will concentrate
on tradeoffs within T-workflow and further develop tests based on T-workflow. The
monitoring and tuning point have also been investigated to understand the validity
and performance of software. Finally through a case study, it has been shown that
better assessment of software performance can be obtained with the suggested tests
developed based on T-workflow and by locating its monitoring point and tuning point.
