WBAT v5.13.1

The WBAT Support Team incorporates requests from the WBAT Community with each platform enhancement, ensuring WBAT remains an integral tool in your safety management system.

Please feel free to contact the WBAT Support Team through the WBAT Help Center with any questions.

System Enhancements

Customizable Executive Summaries for ASAP and Incident Report Types

The executive summaries available for ASAP and incident report types are now customizable. A single user-specified source query will provide the search parameters for the executive summary. Analyses created from that query will be displayed in a designated order on the Executive Summary screen.

During the upgrade to v5.13.1, a default query will be added to the WBAT system as the source of the executive summary. Several default analyses will also be added so the executive summary displays similar information. Analysts and Administrators can edit the default query and analyses as needed, or select a different source query and analyses, to display relevant information for their organization.

Please contact the WBAT Support Team for additional training on customizing executive summaries.

Enhancements to Queries

The following query-related enhancements are included:

  • Added an option in a cross-object-type query for the user to select whether the query is an “inner join” (displaying results from where the tables overlap) or a “left outer join” (displaying all results from the left table [i.e., the first specified query] and overlapping results from the other tables [i.e., all other specified queries]).
  • Added the capability to export data from a cross-object-type query as a TDE file.
  • Added the capability to export data from a cross-object-type query via the Object Web Service (OWS) as a CSV or TDE file.

Updates to Server Structure

The WBAT Development Team has updated the structure of the servers supporting the WBAT systems. This backend change will not affect how users log into WBAT, just the displayed URL in the browser address bar.

The URL format that your users will continue to specify to access your WBAT system will remain the same, that is, the domain (typically your organization name) followed by “.wbat.org” (such as training.wbat.org, where “training” is the domain).

However, once your users log into your WBAT system, they will see a different URL in the browser address bar so in the “training” domain example, the URL would be: app.wbat.org/training/landing

Other Enhancements

The following other enhancements are included:

  • Added a requirement that before the FAA Quarterly Report is submitted to the FAA either at least one safety enhancement is included or a checkbox acknowledging that there are no safety enhancements is selected.
  • Added the capability to associate investigations with safety plans.
  • Created a warning message for users that do not have JavaScript enabled on their browser.
  • Updated the SMS VP/Part 5 gap analysis checklist with the most recent version published by the FAA.
