XASB Financial Report Proof of Concept of Zero Defect Intelligent XBRL-based Financial Report

The XASB Financial Report Proof of Concept is exactly that, a proof of concept.  What I am doing is stealing every good idea of every taxonomy I have been exposed to, using those ideas in this proof of concept and avoiding all the mistakes others have made that lead to problems.  This financial reporting proof of concept uses the imaginary XASB accounting standards, so I can avoid any constraints imposed by the FASB's US GAAP XBRL Taxonomy and/or IASB's IFRS XBRL Taxonomy in my working prototype.

Further, any public company can use these ideas to file their XBRL-based financial reports to the SEC. Why? Because that is where I got most of what went into this proof of concept: by reverse engineering public company XBRL filings to the SEC. What this proof of concept does is decouple what the SEC requires that would not be applicable to other financial reporting schemes.

What is the point? To create a perfect, or as near as perfect as possible, zero-defect intelligent XBRL-based digital financial report. Why? Software testing.

Here is my first working prototype:

More to come so stay tuned! Don't make the mistake of misinterpreting what you see.  Lots and lots of stuff is going to change in the taxonomy itself.  Also, the modularity of this is not what I want, so that will likewise change.  Also, I need to tune the conceptual model.

If you have any comments or suggestions, please send them to me if you so choose. Great way to learn!
