Model transformation languages, the cornerstone of Model-Driven Engineering, often lack mechanisms for abstraction, reuse and debugging. We propose a model transformation framework providing different abstraction levels together with an extensible library of predefined transformations and a dedicated runtime model in terms of Coloured Petri Nets for transformation execution and debugging.
