BEST, Beginning to End for Simulation and Training, is the single-solution air traffic control simulator designed by controllers for controllers to enable you to achieve your simulation goals.
BEST Insights is a simulation business intelligence and decision-support tool. It helps optimise air traffic control management, improve ATCO trainee performance, enhance safety, reduce environmental impact and inform business decisions.
BEST Insights allows you to extract the rich data that lies within every simulation session to evaluate a multitude of operational and aspirational air traffic management scenarios. Whether assessing new airspace design, runway configurations, airspace and runway capacity, proposed infrastructure changes or new ATC tools and alerts, this provides real ATC performance data to better inform your operation.
HOW BEST INSIGHTS WILL SUPPORT YOUR OBJECTIVES
BEST Insights data can support and inform operational change by comparing the analytical detail with tangible ATC performance.
With BEST Insights you can access objective and subjective data to improve ATCO trainee performance, identifying areas for improvement, and better tailor training to each individual. It also allows you to assess the effectiveness of training plans, syllabus and instructors.
Use BEST Insights to assess different scenarios and their safety impact, as well as the environmental impact of different operational air traffic management scenarios, such as airspace and airport changes, to drive improvement and meet your safety and environmental targets.
Its data-driven insights support long-term strategic plans and investment, help identify long term benefits and underpin strategic plans and investments.
WHAT DOES BEST INSIGHTS OFFER?
BEST Insights will provide you with the capability to collate rich data from the simulator and enables you to digitally collate subjective data from the simulation users. BEST Insights can be configured to automatically log data on the progress of the simulation to a database to enable separate analysis, both online and offline.
The data collected enables a multitude of simulation metrics to be determined such as trainee data, approach spacing, runway occupancy, loss of separation, taxi times, frequency loading and much more. This will enhance the quality of the training experience for instructors, trainees, controllers and managers. The database is compatible with common third-party data analysis tools including Tableau and Microsoft Power BI, for effective presentation and evaluation of customisable metrics.
