Multiple attempts have been made these days to automate the creation of class diagrams by providing structured English statements as input. The resulting diagrams are of close proximity to what the user wants. This paper is one such attempt to transform business designs written in OMG's (Object Management Group) standard SBVR (Semantics of Business Vocabulary and Rules) framework, into a set of classes in UML (Unified Modeling Language) Class Model using a theoretical approach. SBVR provides a set of specific rules which are processed in order to get class diagram of close proximity. It involves the transformation of "Structured English" into a set of UML Class Model with SBVR as a mediator. Further, the results of the approach are validated using VeTIS tool.
