The tutorial is divided up into sections for each module. It is strongly recommended that you go through each section as there are dependencies between section exercises. Even if you are only interested in learning about one module, knowing the capabilities of each module and how they interact with each other will provide you with a better understanding of how best to realize your MES solution.
