Path Coordination System (PCS)

From mid-June until the beginning of October 2016, various working groups PCS FTE-RNE met with the participation of passenger traffic and freight traffic RUs, IM and RFC users.

We will give you a brief overview of the most important topics:

  • Commissioning of the new PCS release will take place on 14 November 2016. From 15 November 2016, you will be able to create your dossiers for the path requests in April 2017 (timetable 2018).
  • PCS offers you the new functionality "Carry Forward" to copy the dossiers from the 2017 timetable in the 2018 timetable.
  • The next meetings of the PCS working groups are planned for mid-February 2017.
  • Further development of the concept "Empty Envelope". A group of PCS users (RUs, IM, RFC) under the guidance of FTE, RNE and Netcetera are currently developing a concept for unifying the creation of the PCS dossiers from the Open phase to the active timetable phase. The earliest implementation is planned for the release in November 2017 (timetable 2019). The next meeting will take place in Vienna on 24 November 2016.
