The primary objective of this paper is to summarise the empirical application of a designed case-based manufacturing vision (MV) development prototype (CBRM). This empirical application is undertaken using case study strategy, due to its ability to answer the research questions regarding the relevance, eﬀectiveness and eﬃciency of the CBRM.Within each case, the CBRM processes are followed through the analysis on the situational information and application of the cases as well as general domain knowledge, towards generation of a competitive set of strategic approaches for a certain enterprise. The three real world cases (companies) were selected in the USA within diﬀerent industrial segments. The application results suggest that the CBRM is supportive of the decision-making process for tackling strategic manufacturing issues.
