Use Case Guidelines: Manufacturers come to MESA to learn best practices about manufacturing operations in a neutral, non-commercial environment. They are not interested in advertisements or claims of superiority by any one company or technology. Therefore, use cases must be free of overt commercialism. Specific product or company names should not appear in the use case and should be replaced with a generic term. Use cases should not include an opinion or recommendation of another member company or potential member company (or their products/software offerings) in any way. This includes negative or positive comments about other companies' capabilities, strengths, weaknesses, etc. Content should strive for vendor neutrality. Company name can appear by the author(s) name(s) and a company logo can be included on sponsored use cases only.
All submitted content must be devoid of any references to political, ethnic, or religious preferences.
