Performability, having the capability of providing a holistic view of system attributes, is suitable for serving as a framework to integrate various system analyses. This article is motivated by two observed problems in today's industry, i.e., the lack of a mechanism to monitor the integrity of system analyses, and the resistance of applying conventional performability measures. A framework based on the concept of performability is proposed, which provides a systematic view for all attributes while maintaining individual attributes' characteristics.
