Abstract
The importance of early performance assessment grows
as software systems increase in terms of size, logical dis-
tribution and interaction complexity. Lack of time from the
side of software developers, as well as distance among soft-
ware model notations and performance model representa-
tion do not help to build an integrated software process that
takes into account, from the early phases of the lifecycle,
non functional requirements. In this paper we work towards
filling this gap by extending the capabilities of a simulative
environment developed for the UML notation. Out intent
is to introduce new stereotypes representing performance
related items, such as resource types and job dispatchers.
They allow the software designers to homogeneously repre-
sent a software architecture integrated with a running plat-
