In this paper, we report on extensive calculations of radiative data in Yb-like tungsten ion using several independent atomic structure methods, i.e. the relativistic Hartree-Fock approach, the flexible atomic code and the multiconfiguration Dirac-Fock method. This multi-platform approach allowed us to check the consistency of our results. Advantages and shortcomings of semi-empirical and ab initio methods for atomic structure calculations in such a complex heavy ion are also discussed in
