Nowadays, with the technological revolution, software has become part of everyday activities. The demand for software with quality and speed is a decisive factor for the competition between software development companies or organizations. ISO/IEC 25010:2011 mentions that performance efficiency is related to the performance relative to the amount of resources used under set conditions, based on their temporal behavior, the use of resources and the software's capacity to function. In Cuba, there is evidence of user dissatisfaction with the response times and connectivity of national mobile applications. On the other hand, software development companies consider testing associated with performance efficiency to be important; however, 71% carry it out in the final stages of system development. As a consequence, it is evident that defects associated with performance efficiency persist in the reviews. This research proposes a framework for incorporating the evaluation of performance efficiency from early stages in the development of software, which allows us to know the behavior of this characteristic during the software life cycle and detect defects as early as possible to correct them at the corresponding level and not escalate to higher levels, which makes it possible to increase the quality of the final product. The validation was carried out using the methods and techniques of high international reference.
