Performance Testing & Planning 
What is the Jama Quality Assurance testing process? Under what circumstances should you write your own tests? What are some tips for writing tests? How to measure your results? How can Enterprise Elite and Essentials benefit you?

​When we update our Jama environment we focus on our workflows. We do not automate tests, but let our users test our workflows in a defined time frame with a copy of the current production data.
We experience ~5 to 10 issues we report to Jama with every release which I would not expect to be found in a performance test, but in a functional test - so I'd be interested in how Jama runs the functional test and regression tests. Is that covered here as well?

​When talking about performance I feel that you currently focus on the technical, measurable performance of the software itself.
For the users the "felt" performance increases immediately if the Usability is improved - so they can finish their task in say 50% of their time if the Usability is improved, regardless of how quick REST calls go through.
How does Jama perform Usability tests to increase the performance (=the time a user needs to fulfill a certain task)?
