Abstract / Description of output

This paper presents a tool for creating and running experiments within a performance modelling environment, and a practical case study through which its key features are illustrated. The case study is concerned with optimising the load arrangement of a hospital information system. The paper describes the experiments created to support the case study in a textual and a graphical format.
Both tool development and evaluation work are being carried out in parallel as part of the IMSE project. The paper presents this evaluation which resulted in the elicitation of further requirements on the tool. We also describe how many of these have been incorporated into the final tool design. The paper concludes with a description of the objectives for further work on the experimenter tool.
