The analysis of a scenario specification for a new system can address some questions of system performance, in the sense of delay and capacity estimation. To assist the analyst, a performance model can be generated automatically from a Use Case Map specification in the UCM Navigator (UCMNav). This paper describes the process, and the information that must be supplied in the way of scenario annotations. It illustrates the tool-supported process with a substantial example related to electronic commerce, which demonstrates the impact of provisioning the software architecture for concurrency.
