When a user is working with a consist, TMS flags it as being in use so that other users cannot work with the same consist at the same time. Occasionally, you may need to go into a consist that is already in use. In addition, if a communication problem occurs and a user is dropped from the system while using a consist, TMS may incorrectly mark the consist as being in use.
