I am pleased to announce that we have issued a new version of the FAST Standard.

This incorporates the results of work undertaken to review and amend the FAST Standard’s guidance on Excel Names, with changes made to the following clauses:

3.03-08 Do not use Excel Names; and
4.03 Excel Names

FAST Standard 02b June 2016 is available for download here.

The FAST Standard makes reference to regular reviews and revisions – including an aspiration to publish revisions on a quarterly basis.  For the period ending 30 September 2016, we shall be undertaking a specific review of “FAST 1.01-05 Proliferate links to maximise navigational efficiency”.

This cornerstone of the FAST Standard – whilst accepted and embraced by many enthusiasts – is also a common cause of complaint and resistance from other modellers.

If you would like to participate in this discussion, then please consider joining the FAST User Group.  I plan to initiate a discussion in the next day or two.
