FAST Modelling Standard
From ACT Wiki
A set of rules on the structure and design of spreadsheet-based models.
The FAST Standard is designed to provide:
- A clear route to good model design for individual modellers, and
- A common style platform on which modellers and reviewers can rely, when passing models amongst each other.
The FAST Standard's philosophy is:
- Simplicity; and
- Rigorous structuring.
For example, Excel formulae should be:
- Short; and
- Use only a limited set of functions.
