NIST’s CPS Public Working Group developed the draft framework in an effort to help CPS developers design and build new systems that can interact with other smart platforms that link computing and physical devices, NIST said Friday.
“Creating a complex device involves a lot of people with varying interests and concerns, from the designers to the engineers to the safety testers,” said David Wollman, co-chairman of CPS PWG.
“What the framework provides is an organized treatment of these concerns so the group can address and manage them all effectively.”
The public and industry stakeholders have 45 days to submit comments on the draft guide.
The agency plans to issue a second draft and subject it to another public comment period prior to the release of a final version.
