Edit agencies


Edit agencies is a key function of PCS since the user can add/remove agency's access from the dossier. Generally, the edit agency feature is available for the leading agencies (RU, IM, RFC) and they can change the agency settings. This guide will show how to work with the "Edit agencies" function. For further information about the meaning and definition of the different kind of agencies please check the linked documents.

Edit agencies for RUs

Let's check the baseline before editing the agencies. The user can find this information in the basic data dossier segment:

Edit agencies on operation points

If the user of the leading RU like to update the responsible RUs on particular stations, he should go to the RU timetable and open it for editing. There it will be possible for the leading RU to change the responsible RUs on the operation points.

Permissions: The edition can be performed in Open and Harmonization phases. After the user performs the changes, he should save it and PCS will automatically adjust the RU - IM pair structure in the basic data.

Edit agencies after the changes

What else can be done with edit agencies?

  • Change of the leading RU

  • Add/remove service agencies
  • Add/remove production agencies

Edit agencies (RUs)

After the changes are done, e.g. new service agency was added to the dossier, the new agency will find the dossier on his Dashboard when the dossier reaches Harmonization.

Edit agencies for IMs

Similar to RUs the changing leading agency is also possible for the IMs.

You can see on the picture that the leadin IM was changed.

Edit agencies for RFCs

In case of overlapping sections between two RFCs it is necessary to define the responsible and the participating RFC. During the creation of PaP dossiers the Excel importer provides this possibility, however it is available later in the system too. RFCs can use edit agencies to define participating RFC in a PaP.

After the changes are done and dossier is saved, the participating RFC is visible in the dossier.
