USER MANUAL OF COIS 

   

1.     Introduction

Coaching Stock Module is the second vital phase of Integrated Coaching Management System. There has been substantial growth of passenger traffic on Indian Railways in the last few years and in the number of coaches for the different types like vacuum & air brake, Ac 1st class, 2-tier, 3-tier, chair car, and Non-A/C, Sleeper Coaches, Day Coaches, Pantry Cars and Brake Vans etc. The number has increased considerably and to handle their usage for run on regular trains and for bookings for reserved carriages for Marriage Parties, Pilgrim Special Trains and other Government jobs manually has become very cumbersome.  The need has come to computerize the complete coaching operations information system to have the entire data of each coach on Indian railways readily available on computer for its optimum use and traffic management at all levels.

RAKE FORMATION

Top

 

RAKE FORMATION MODULE: This module helps user in reporting the information of scratch rakes formed. Rakes may be formed for Regular Train as well as for the special train (like pilot, departmental). This has been developed to give the information that how the trains are formed afresh, i.e. either form a scratch Rake by giving Coach Numbers or use one of the available Rakes to run a train. This is different from picking up the link rake as once the link rake has arrived then operator can use Verify Consist option to run the link train.  

For Regular Trains, the operator is required to select the Train No, and Scheduled Departure Date for which the rake is to be formed. Form RF.1 On selecting the train no, scheduled departure date, scheduled departure time, Source of the train and destination is displayed automatically. Scheduled departure date can be either future date (System allows 3 days in future and 3 days in past to allow back dated entries) or 3 days back date. After this the operator will select the line on which the rake is being formed. Line type needs to be selected from the drop down list. If operator is not able to identify the line type then he can select the option ‘All’ to see all the lines. As line type (or All) is selected, system displays all lines of the selected type by local name. On selecting a line the system displays the line capacity and no of coaches present on the line. The operator can then select the specific line on which the rake is being formed. Rake Formation date and time is to be given. The description of all the above fields is given in the table below Table of Fields-Form RF.1 . When the operator clicks the ‘GO’ button the next form of Rake Formation opens

This form displays the coaches as in standard marshalling order (from Rake Link Data) with blank coaches Form RF.2 .By default the owning Railway of coach is displayed as the owning Railway of Rake. The operator can then attach the coaches by clicking on Coach No field. The operator, as he clicks on the coach number field, is displayed a list of coaches, which are of given type and given owning Railway and are currently located in his yard. The operator can change Railway/Type to attach coaches. Coaches can be added by clicking on ‘+’ sign and can be deleted by ‘X’ sign.To add a coach in the end last ‘+’ sign is to be clicked.

By clicking the Update button the information related to Rake Formation is saved in the database. And this Rake may be used for further operations.

 

For Special Trains,

In case of Special Trains Form RF.3 is displayed. Form RF.3.

In case of Special Trains the operator is required to enter the train number also along with the train name, remarks for running the train and Scheduled Departure date and time (this may be approximate date and time), Originating Station, Terminating Station and Day Count (day count is the no of days to reach the destination, this can be approximate day count), and Rake Formation Date and Time. When the operator clicks the ‘GO’ button the next form of Rake Formation opens. Since in the case of special trains, System is not having any information, Form RF.4 is displayed. In this form the operator can enter the coaches which will be attached to the train. Once the operator enters owning railway and coach type then on clicking the coach number field ,a list of coaches, which are of given type and given owning Railway and are currently located in his yard are displayed. The operator can select by clicking on coach to attach in the train. Coaches may be added or deleted by ‘+’ or ‘X’ buttons.

By clicking the Update button the information related to Rake Formation is saved in the database. And this Rake may be used for further operations.

Top

TRAIN DEPARTURE REPORTING: This option allows the operator to report departure of a train at the reporting location. Whenever a train’s departure is reported, it involves capturing information about actual date/time and train consist. This comes under platform activity. The operator selects the option ‘Departure Reporting’ to enter outward information of an originating train at the reporting location. System displays the Form DR.1.

The system retrieves and displays the list of trains, which originates at the reporting location and the special trains (departmental trains) for which Rake is ready. Backward reporting cannot be done for more than last three days. The operator selects a train number for reporting. The system displays the list of last three dates and current date (taking in the view the days of run of the selected train) on which train was scheduled to depart. The operator selects the date (scheduled departure date) and then clicks the GO button. Departure can be reported only for the Examined Rakes except in the case where train can return back from platform itself. If the operator selects an unexamined Rake then the following message is thrown

Error: Current Station is Primary Maintainence Station of train no. TESTU - Outward possible only after Rake Examination.

Once train number and start date is selected, system retrieves the examined rake, if not found then following message is thrown

Error: Neither scratch rake nor link rake is available. Form a scratch rake for 2002 on 11/03/2006

If a rake is found then form DR.2 is displayed with Coach Details. Coach may be added here. To remove a coach Detachment option is to be used.Before reporting departure, if the Rake has not been moved to the platform, then error message is thrown as

Error : Rake currently not at platform. Move the rake to platform to report dispatch.

This allows detachment to be reported only after actual departure is reported at the originating station. According to the requirement, user can attach/detach any coach from the train by simply clicking on the (+) & (X) button For attaching a coach (+) button given a user can attach any coach in any location and make an entry for coach. To detach a coach, click on the select field against the coach. Once selected, reason and date/time of detachment is to be given. When user wants to attach/detach a coach from the rake then he has to select a reason from the drop-down ‘Reason for attach/detach’ that shows the reason (such as coach being sick, coach for shop etc) for which the coach is being detached. By clicking on the ’Confirm Attachment/Detachmentbutton a new window open which will display a ‘coach Attachement/detachment completed successfully’ message will be displayed.

DISPUTE RESOLVE

Top

 

DISPUTE RESOLVE MODULE has been developed to solve the dispute, which occur under two conditions.

1: When the yard does not have any information about the arrived coach then he mark dispute on that coach. For example-> the total number of coaches arrived are 15 out of which yard has information about 14 coaches and it doesn’t have any information about the remaining coach. So yard must mark dispute on that particular coach.

2.When the yard contains all information about the coaches but the specified coach is not attached to the arrived train. For example-> the total number of coaches arrived are 14 out of 15 coaches.  The yard has information about all the coaches i.e. 15 but only 14coaches reached there. The yard mark dispute on the remaining coach, which was unable to reach.

To solve this dispute the status of the coach is marked dispute against the status of the coach.
