A stepwise approach is proposed to predict the performance of component compositions. The approach considers the major factors influencing the performance of component compositions in sequence: component operations, activities, and composition of activities. During each step, various models – analytical, statistical, simulation – can be constructed to specify the contribution of each relevant factor to the performance of the composition. The architects can flexibly choose which model they use at each step in order to trade prediction accuracy against prediction effort. The approach is illustrated with an example about the performance prediction for an Automobile Navigation System.
