Attached to New: Real time/embedded systems development
What we decided
Accepted. See also change request #16.
What we changed
Additional skill for SFIA7 - Real time/embedded systems development.
Consideration given to whether this was already covered by existed SFIA skills such as Software development/programming, Systems design, Testing.
- We concluded there was significant differences to warrant a standalone skill,
- For SFIA7 this is written as a skill encompassing the full lifecycle (design, development, test) - this decision will be monitored and revisited if necessary.
