1303 Loco ident entry in Common train parameters

When defining a second traction loco in common train parameters it doesn't make sense to define it as first traction unit in the group again. This should be prevented by the system.

1296 Using of UIC-Master Data for selection of RUs, IMs (name and RICS-Code)

At the moment in PCS RUs/ IMs, involved in a dossiers, will be selected/ shown only with the name of company.

For easier selection of involved agency it would be helpfull to use master data of UIC (name and RICS-code of RUs/ IMs - see UIC-page: http://www.uic.org/rics, file "Company Codes published on 6 April 2017 - RICS Codes").

RICS-code is unique, so it will be ensured that correct company will be selected. These data should be regularly uploaded and implemented in PCS. These master data should be complemented by non-UIC-companies.

In result in every step/view, where user select involved agencies (RUs/IMs), RICS-code should also be listed next to the companies name (e.g. DB Cargo Deutschland AG – 2180).

1286 "recent activity" more detailed

Viewing "recent activities" it's possible to see the older versions but many details are missing (which company created this sepcial older version) and at what date and time this dossier was saved concreatly.

1282 Display of operation points with only particular activity types (e.g. hide run through stations, show only commercial stops, etc.)

Timetable in PCS will contain full path with all operation points. That means all points on the path including run through points. It is usually tenths or hundreds points for one IM. Then the overview for the user in GUI will be lost. Proposed is to let the user choose its own set, which kind of points should be displayed in the GUI according to the activity types. For instance: show me only points with "Commercial stops", or "show me everything but not run through and operational stops".

User should be able to define its own filter of activity types to display. It could be part of the user settings too.

For further details and proposals please see picture in attachment.

1268 Managing on unused returned PaP's as CT.

Actually, Non requested PaPs return to the national IM as CT-Open.

These dossiers floating in the recent activity and ,in case the IM decides not to publish them, cannot be closed directly by bulk managing.

IM user has to perform several in between steps to transfer them to the phase "closed".

Direct function from "CT-Open" towards "CT-Closed" could be interesting.


End results= better managing of all unresolved, since not needed CT-open dossiers will not longer be shown in this view.

1254 Show Parameter of locations summarized in timetables and comparison view

If parameter are the same for several locations, they should only be shown in one location (the first location parameters are valid for). If parameters are changed for one locations, these changed parameters should be shown all over again under train parameter.
Show parameter only again, if they deviate, this would help to shorten the view.

1214 PDF export

For PDF export:

  1. User needs to go back to basic data to search for the export button..
  1. The position of the calendar section (at the end of the dossier, K1-K2-K3-K4-K5 ,..),why not insert it directly after each TT, would make more sense, and easier for the user to interpret

1213 CR improved visibility common train parameters

Actually, the common train parameters are hidden in each TT variant.

When user want to view them, he has to click on the location to open the train parameters.

Comparing these parameters (between location) cannot be done directly in one view.

Therefore, we propose to add a new viewer, in the (RU) IM TT that visualises for the TT all the common train parameters.

Differences will be presented clearly, and for all Agencies, that kind of overview improves also the general data quality of a dossier.


For details, see PDF attachment

1200 Improved visibility of train characteristics changes

PCS GUI should highlight if any value of train characteristics has changed depending on the previous operation points in order to indicate a change of train characteristics in the course of the timetable. Presently this is very hard to determin, as you'll have to expand common and IM parameters separately and you'll then hardly see more than one or two operation points. It is very difficult to determine some small changes in the parameters. It is very easy to make careless mistakes.

Imagine a train running via 10 intermediate operation points. At the 8th operation point, a characteristics change is in place (i. e. loco change). So operation points 1 through 7 have got the same set of parameters. But for some reason, the RU user forgot to click the checkbox "emergency brake override" only at the 3rd operation point. For us it would mean to have 4 different sets of train characteristics in place: the initial one at the 1st operation point, one without EBO at the 3rd point, then the initial set again at the 4th point and the set after the loco change at the 8th point. In fact, only 2 different sets were desired by the RU. Solution would be to highlight all points, where train characteristics have changed in comparison to the previous operation point. By this the RU user would have been probably alerted about his mistake at the 4th point.

It is important to do this separately for commond and IM parameters.

1195 improved usability when editing a location

Actually,when not all mandatory train parameters are completed, the RU gets the warning in the TT  "that there are mandatory tainparameters that you need to enter".

To gain access to the missing trainparameters, user needs to click on the "Edit train parameters" button,then, the system will open and then the user can edit the missing data.

Propoasl: direct access from the text  "that there are mandatory tainparameters that you need to enter",and system places the cursor immediately in the field where the data are missing

PCS should be improved to allow user to do 

filter in column with multiple selection

Sort out by columnn should be possible as well

Train max speed should be editable within this functionnality

Parameter set code name could be used several time if corridor is not the same

1177 visibility of closed dossiers

see above: searching should work in the first vision only to active dossiers without old dossiers (closed / deleted). To search this old dossers there should be a seperate function / activated buttons.

1155 create frequency passenger trains

In the current version of PCS, dossier can only been copied 1x, with the flexibility to shift in departure time (+/-) and day shift (+/-).

Unfortunately, it is not possible to multiply dossiers several times, so the RU cannot start from 1 main dossier for train 1505 and multiply it in one step to create frequency train series 1506 to 1522.

1126 Predefined filter "my history"

It is important to implement a optional predefined filter "My history" in dashboard. It is especially usefull for users, who manage a lot of dossiers and would like be able to reconstruct which changes they did. This information is also useful for representors.

1054 EWP (turnaround cycle plan): Report generated by PCS

It was agreed that the EWP will be implementet into an IT system. Much of the data required to work with EWPs are already entered into PCS. Therefore it would be beneficial to use this data by downloading it into an Excel file to be uploaded to the new system.
