MAUS usage is handled by several applications that enable basic usage of the framework. Each application runs several modules against a particular configuration. The particular modules that the application runs, and the configuration that is run against, can all be modified by the user.

25 16 Rogers, Chris
MAUS uses a modular structure in its applications. Uses can alter the modules which a particular application runs or define their own application. The different modules are listed in the [[Components]] section.
