Information : First Article Scheduling Technique
First Article Scheduling Technique (FAST) is an automated critical path planning and scheduling technique used to project schedule slippage and to determine the impact on delivery. Since it is on-line (interactive), this projection is obtained immediately. FAST takes into account any float that exists in the schedule. If FAST determines that delivery will be impacted, then the First Article Master Scheduling Committee (FASCO) is used to get back on schedule.
The FAST program was developed at Litton but has been made available to other firms and agencies. By examining the effects of schedule changes on other downstream activities along the critical path, FAST provides a simple and reliable tool for program management.
