Formalisation

The Qtier-Rapor software framework embraces all key formalisation features and extends formal I.T. methods across spreadsheet solutions. They include automation, control, traceability, security and compliance.

At the highest level, formalisation is achieved by bringing informal, uncontrolled spreadsheet processes under the control of Qtier-Rapor.

The Qtier-Rapor design methodology dictates that:

  • A spreadsheet process is linked to a Qtier-Rapor Process
  • Data should be stored securely, centrally and available in a real-time manner
  • Processes are logically grouped to form Applications
  • Processes are broken down into one or more Step Sequences
  • Step Sequences are broken down into one or more Steps
