Airlines progressing towards order management often stumble on the future of the Departure Control System. Boris gives a good summary on what needs to remain above the wing (exchange of passenger data with governments, readiness to fly of passengers, check-in of bags, etc.) and below the wing (weight and balance, etc.) Рand what needs to change (connect to OMS instead of PSS, exchange data with API instead of EDIFACT, etc.).

The actual DCS question is: once we’ve implemented the order delivery module, which includes the data to governments, the passenger readiness to fly, the bag check-in, the seat assignments, etc., what’s left in a standalone DCS?
