Abstract: A business process model can be configured to meet the specific requirements of the organization through the configuration.Automatic configuration activities need identifying variants of a process model which can be configured,while ensuring the correctness of this particular process model.However,there are few methods to solve this problem.This paper proposed an innovative approach for automatically separating a configurable process model into atomic and correct sub-process models without abnormal behavioral problems.Compared with existing approaches,our approach avoids independently handling the configuration activity and reduces computational complexity.Moreover,our approach is language-independent.

Key words: Configurable process models,Configuration,Atomic,Sub-process models
