Note: The following descriptions represent the typical access and privileges afforded to users designated as Dispatch Managers/Supervisors. Users with dispatcher privileges will have limited access to a subset of the screens presented.
For an overview of the WebFOMS features see the Aircraft Characteristics screen. The features described there can be applied to all screens.
For instructions on how to make modifications on the WebFOMS screens, see Modify, View Aircraft Characteristics. It uses the Aircraft Characteristics as an example but can be applied to all WebFOMS screens.
Screen is the default view when you first go to a WebFOMS screen. When Screen is selected you can view all records that exist in the system. Select the arrow in the first field of the WebFOMS screen to access the drop-down menu to view the list of available records.
Only items that exist in the database are shown in the drop-down list.
This program is intended as a control file to help ensure that access to the system is limited to designated personnel, and that Aircraft captains scheduled for particular flights are indeed compatible with the Aircraft scheduled for use. This can be of considerable significance in those cases where a change in Aircraft type is dictated by maintenance or scheduling problems. Operations staff will be alerted to the fact that crew scheduling will have to assign a different crew. The names of flight crew and dispatchers can be drawn from this data file and transcribed to each flight plan as it is produced.
The Flight Operations Personnel menu is a web-based version of the FOMS 160 menu. It has the same purpose as the FOMS 160 menu with the addition of a Copy button. The Copy button lets you copy enroute stations.
See Flight Operations Personnel Fields for a description of the fields used.
