In recent past every discipline and every industry have their own methods of developing products. It may be software development, mechanics, construction, psychology and so on. These demarcations work fine as long as the requirements are within one discipline. However, if the project extends over several disciplines, interfaces have to be created and coordinated between the methods of these disciplines. Prototype of these applications is developed during analysis phase of Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC). But Methodologies for predicting the performance from UML models is available. Hence, in this paper, a methodology for developing Use Case model and Activity model from user interface is presented. The methodology is illustrated with a case study on
