Step Four, Part B: Usage Guidelines Development

The next step is to produce usage guidelines. A Description Set Profile defines the "what" of the application profile. Usage guidelines provide the "how" and "why". Usage guidelines offer instructions to those who will create the metadata records.  For Credential Engine, these usage guidelines will explain each descriptor and provide guidance on major decisions that must be made in creating a metadata record.

[Documentation of the Usage Guidelines by the Credential Engine Technical Advisory Committee and the Credential Engine Technical Team will be recorded below as the work advances.]
