Regardless of it's a timetable or a calendar, the selected territory or sub-path is highlighted. Let's check this with a bit more complex outline.You can see that we are in a sub-path of the green territory from Komarom to Lőkösháza.Apart from the presentation, it can help you to even select the sub-path via the Outline. Just go to the Outline, click on the line and select the sub-path you need.Path VariantsEverything above is valid also for the Path Variants, but there it has one additional option for you. As there we have whole routes and not only sub-paths in territories, the view looks also different.Máté Bak created How to use the Outline?

    Introduction

    Since PCS Envelope Concept release (version 2.x) there is a new view in PCS, the so-called Outline. It's available always for the users in the timetable view (territories, calendar, path variants) and it's presented also in the different dossier creation wizards. The aim of this documentation is to introduce its particularities and abilities.

    Information presented on the Outline

    The Outline shows information from the dossier based on the entered timetable data. It shows for each territory the following information:

    • Origin and destination of the sub-path
    • The earliest arrival of the location in the timetables
    • The latest departure time of the location in the timetables

    Different or alternative origin/destination

    Please note that currently, PCS doesn't know the railway infrastructure network. However, it can assume sometimes, based on the entered timetable data. If a location is used in a timetable as an intermediate stop but in another timetable it's used an origin/destination, PCS will show this information in the Outline properly.

    In this example, Békéscsaba is presented also in the sub-path Szob - Lőkösháza. That enables PCS to make the proper interpretation of the network.

    It will be there for you whenever you need it

    Hide/Show

    By default the Outline view is available for the users, however, if it bothers you, you can hide it by clicking the header line of the Outline.

    Scroll up and down

    Even if you are scrolling up and down in the timetable, the Outline will go with you all the time.

    Migration scope

    All dossiers from TT2018, TT2019 and TT2020 has been migrated. Dossiers in PCS NG style (including former timetable periods) are available in PCS NG read-only environment.

    Dossiers not migrated

    For some reasons the following dossiers were not migrated:

    • TT2020: '200009','200578','200581','202292','205042','205046','205047','205088','205201','205273','205559','205561','205663','206267','206311','206526','206611','206618','206874','206877','211365','202291','204528'
    • TT2019: '190493','190617','190939','191638','192148','192154','192924','192928','192957','193211','198161','198162','198165','198166','184233','186725','192374','192376','192378','192380','192382','192384','192386','192388','192390','192422','192431','192791','192859','192916','192927','192938','192942','192943','192950','192952','192953','192955','192956','192960','192961','192963','193265'

    Migration rules

    Sub-paths in PCS EC version get the title "Main" or "Subsidiary" depending on the original timetable

    Calendar overlapping constraints of PCS EC are not applied for the migrated dossiers

    Singe path section problem

    In PCS EC version each sub-path of territory must contain at least two locations (path sections). In the current timetables of PCS, it happens sometimes, when a pair (applicant - IM) has only one location. In this case, during the migration, we duplicate this location.

    Migration challenges

    There are some special cases, where general logic cannot be applied or the structures of PCS NG and PCS EC are not in line with each other.

    • Main with jumping territories* and subsidiaries with jumping territories -> in case if they have the same structure (same order of the territories) we will perform the migration
    • Main with jumping territories and subsidiary without jumping territories -> we are going to check the borders - if borders are not the same we are going to add it to the first territory
    • Main without jumping territories and subsidiary with jumping territories - if we have dossiers with this kind of structure, we handle them case by case.
    • The subsidiary has territory not present in Main -> in this case we are going to add it at the end by default or according to RNE recommendation

    *Jumping territories: we are jumping in and out to the same territory. In this case, the timetable goes like this, for example, Germany - Austria - Germany.
