Abstract: An improved method of complex computer systems design could be implemented in the environment of the object-oriented software, in particular in the BPM environment (Business Process Management) and using the Enhanced CMDA concept (shortly named e-CMDA, where CMDA denotes the Consistent Model Driven Architecture). Thus, it enables automating the design of the underlying software architecture while applying consistency rules of UML diagram series which are based on the calculation of entropy of UML diagrams using the FBS software architecture metric. IT systems produced along the e-CMDA are built up quicker, more productively, and less erroneous, which makes such architectures particularly useful for agile development methods. The methodology of e-CMDA facilitates direct comparison from the implementability assessments of different software architectures by means of objective calculation of consistency, completeness and transformability of diagrams.
