This paper describes a fully automated approach to statistically derive and run test cases. In this process scenario descriptions are used to construct an automata-based usage model as the test model responsible for the generation of test cases. Besides others, performance issues are considered and it is explained how to integrate these into the derivation of test cases. The whole process is based on the UML 2.0 and TTCN-3, two new versions of leading standards in software engineering and testing. Time and performance extensions are covered by the UML SPT-Profile and by TimedTTCN-3, respectively.
