STM32 and computational demands

Hello everyone
I had this question in the back of my mind for some time now, i have a vague answer, but that is not what engineers are about -precision , right !?  :)
The question pertains to any MCU or DSP, how do you determine if an MCU can handle computations in a given application/project.   For example:
Suppose i have the STM32 (M4)  board, and i want to control two BLCD motor with 2 feedback position control. How do you determine if this will be more than what the STM32 (M4) can chew or it can totally handle it. Assume , there is no Flash code limit and FreeRTOS is used.

If you could explain to me, how an embedded engineer decides what suitable platform for certain application in terms of M-FLOPS, MSPS, and RAM.

Thank you very much
