In this paper we propose a complete algorithm that transforms the Configurable UML Activity Diagram (C UML AD) business model to an individual consistent UML AD business model, where the end user’s configuration values are consistent with the constraints of the model. Meanwhile, the syntactic correctness of the transformed model is preserved. We validate the Transformation Algorithm by showing how all the transformation steps of the algorithm preserve the syntactic correctness of any given configurable business model and by running it on different sets of test scenarios to demonstrate its correctness.
