The 3-layer architecture for methods consisting of the generic model, meta-model, and method layers is considered and the advantages of introducing the generic layer are brought out. It is argued that this layer helps in method selection, construction of methods in diverse domains and has the potential of rapidly engineering methods. A generic model is introduced and then instantiated from meta-models from the Information Systems and Robotics and Project Planning domains. Thereafter methods are produced by an instantiation of these meta-models. Computer based support for the 3-layer architecture is considered and notion of a generic-CASE tool is introduced.
