Overall performance highly depends on problem formulation, solver, and
tuning parameters. Our performance tools are designed to serve the
different needs of our user community. Our goal is to help users
determine reliable solvers for specific test models or if a new algorithm
is to be tested, comparing it to other algorithms and competing approaches.
Our tools are meant as a starting point for investigating algorithm
performance. In collaboration with
the Performance World editorial board we seek to provide automation
collecting performance measurements and
analyzing and visualizing test results.

Performance World Managing Editor.
