Metadata: Use Cases (Proposal)

The following is a proposed schema for use cases.

  • They must be usuable internally by CoG but also externally by other projects
  • They can't be software specific
  • Use cases should have a life cycle... creation, use during development, lessons learned/final report

Example: The DCMIP 2012 use case has been rewritten to follow this convention.
