Reference models are a widely accepted means to facilitate reusable information system and organizational design. At present, besides domain knowledge, the configuration of reference models requires a thorough understanding of both the reference model and the language it is captured in. This hinders the involvement of domain experts without specialized modeling background, in the configuration of reference models. In this paper, we propose a questionnaire-driven approach to reference model configuration which abstracts away from the modeling language.
