End of Phase 2.....what now?

So the final report has been issued on the second of the 'Fortran Revival' activities - phew! Further development, as detailed in earlier posts, will require a significant investment in a - I was going to say rewrite, but its more of a 'create from scratch again' type activity.

The only professional way forward in my view being development of a fully specified, documented, validated and verified code written in an environment that allows proper maintenance processes to be put in place.

There are some suggestions that we could go back to pure Excel calculations - noooooooo - read earlier blogs for my view on that one. Breaks out in a cold sweat just thinking about it.....images of monstrous spreadsheets comes to wait.....that's the finance department!

Wonder what the next project could be......
