Release notes of BowTieXP (version 9.0) and BowTieServer (version 3.0).

Incident grouping (IncidentXP)

In the Treeview you have the opportunity to group your incidents by date – e.g. by year, quarter or month.

Multi edit in all versions (BowTieXP/IncidentXP/AuditXP)

This feature allows you to make multiple selections on elements in your diagrams to which you would like to make identical changes. Example: set criticality on 15 random barriers at once, or edit the text on 7 occurrences on the same barrier. This handy time-saving feature from the Advanced edition is now to be made available on all editions. Which can come in handy on the case overview functionality as well.

Easy access to compliance frameworks (BowTieServer)

Since BowTieXP v2.2 and BowTieServer v8.2 you have been able to work with CGE’s compliance frameworks feature. For instance, ISO27000, COSO, API or JCI standards could be installed and elements from the standards linked to specific barriers, with a view to tracking and demonstrating compliance. In the release, these frameworks are more easily accessible.

Easy registration of incidents, observations, occurrences and complaints (BowTieServer)

In this release of BowTieServer it is possible to capture observations as an integral part of your verification process – or as a separate means to capture observations, complaints and any other type of occurrence that needs attention ‘first hand’.

Integrated Action Tracking to manage and monitor improvement actions and recommendations (BowTieServer)

Once the observations are registered, this release of BowTieServer allows you to manage and monitor the actions and recommendations that are a result of the registration of incidents, audits, ad-hoc observations, etc.

BowTieServer application programming interface (BowTieServer)

For many years BowTieXP has offered a standard way of accessing data in the .btf files by means of the API. This release of BowTieServer and BowTieXP allows you to now also access BowTieServer data via other systems, and, with care, even change data stored in BowTieServer. This allows you to integrate valuable functionality and data in BowTieServer with your existing systems.

Customizable Home Page Widgets (BowTieServer)

In the release you can find new functionality that allows you to have your personal ‘landing page’ as you would like to have it.

‘Barrier first’ scenario based incident registration (BowTieServer)

Ever since the first release of BowTieServer we have offered the possibility to capture and manage your incidents in a ‘scenario-based’ manner. This release offers more flexibility in the manner in which you prefer to record incident data.

Hosted solutions (BowTieServer)

If your organization has a preference for a hosted service, CGE can host BowTieServer for you ‘in the cloud’. You can choose the plan that fits your requirements.

This release of BowTieXP focuses mainly on a new Incident Manager and TOP-SET integration. It combines the well known rigor of a TOP-SET investigation with the flexible tools of IncidentXP. There are of course also smaller enhancements like the direct edit on all diagrams and a new Hazard Type field.

Direct diagram edit

If you double click any text field in a diagram shape, you can now edit it directly without opening an editor window. This greatly enhances the speed of editing. We promise you won’t know how you ever lived without it.

Incident manager

IncidentXP now includes an incident manager which guides a user through all the steps of an investigation. This easy to follow process will help a user make sure a thorough investigation process is done. At the end of the incident process, a standardised report can be generated. This report can be based on a company template that adheres to the company standards.

TOP-SET Root Cause Analysis

TOP-SET is an incident investigation method which we have integrated into IncidentXP. At the core of the method is a simple Root Cause Analysis tree which you can now use to analyse incidents. Following the TOP-SET method has three main phases: Plan, Investigate and Analyse. In each of these phases, IncidentXP can assist you in the process.

Audit aggregation on barrier families

Audit results will now be aggregated on barrier families to make it possible to see audit results for a complete barrier family and then split those results out into the underlying barriers.

Work Bowties in BowTieServer

Work BowTies now has an operation selection which automatically selects the right BowTies, instead of manually selecting each hazard. A risk matrix is also added to risk assess the Work BowTie analysis and there is a new optimised report for operational use which includes a list format instead of the traditional BowTie view.
