It would not have been possible to produce this guidance without the numerous insightful interactions of the authors with a wide range of experts across industry and academia. We cannot acknowledge them all personally here, but their contributions are very much appreciated. In particular, we would like to thank the following AAIP Fellows and colleagues who kindly reviewed and provided feedback on an initial draft of this document:
In the coming months, we will undertake validation of the SACE process by applying it to a number of case studies in different domains. The guidance will be updated to include the details of these case studies. We would very much value feedback on the guidance provided. We would in particular encourage the reader where appropriate to apply this guidance to the development of systems and share those experiences with the authors.
