At least one spreadsheet auditor simply keys the assumptions into its own template model, and sees if it gets similar answers.
Steps in the process where OAK may be useful include
|1||Summarize workbook will deliver a list of all the values that serve as inputs to the model. These are candidates for inserting into the template model.|
|2||Where the rebuilt model gives a different answer from the one being tested, OAK can analyse the discrepancy between the two and identify its origin.|
|3||Compare workbooks/worksheets, to understand how a new version of the model, which needs to be checked, differs from an older version that has been checked already.|
