Architecture description is critical for the development of large-scale software-intensive systems. However, there isn't a generic framework that can guide modelers through the derivation process of a domain-specific architecture modeling method (AMM). This process is usually complicated especially when the system is large-scale. In this paper, we propose a generic framework (named as GCVL) to guide modelers to devise AMMs for various domains. GCVL framework has been evaluated by applying it to derive an AMM (named as SAMM) for the ship command and control systems. SAMM is evaluated through a full-size industrial application. Results of the evaluation show that GCVL framework is applicable to define AMMs for large-scale software-intensive systems.
