FAST Modelling Standard

From ACT Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

A set of rules on the structure and design of spreadsheet-based models.

The FAST Standard is designed to provide:

  1. A clear route to good model design for individual modellers, and
  2. 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.
