The LEBCI(Loop Electronics Bar Code Inventory) system is a mechanized tool designed to inventory a wide variety of plug-in equipment, power equipment and batteries in central offices, CEV equipment shelters and other remote external housings.
LEBCI eliminates manual encoding of facility records and provides the status of plug-ins that have been identified as being defective by the manufacturer through the PCN (Product Change Notice) System.
The plug-ins that are candidates for change-out are identified and their exact locations are recorded in the appropriate database.
The inventory function provides management with detailed information regarding the large capital investment in plug-ins and associated hardware. The PCN function provides an efficient means of locating and removing safety and service affecting plug-ins from the plant.
Plug-in inventory information is typically collected by plant personnel using any laptop computer equipped with the Microsoft Windows 3.1, Windows 9x, or Windows NT/2000 operating system, along with the CMC 8988WL WinLEBCI Application Software.
The scan function is enabled by connecting a CMC bar code scanning wand (or equivalent device) to the serial port of the laptop, with the associated power supply/adapter module.
The information collected is uploaded to the LEIS system (Loop Engineering Information System) for inventory verification. The uploaded data is edited and verified by a designated LEBCI Coordinator, then passed on to the appropriate module of LEIM (Loop Electronics Inventory Module).
LEIM is an engineering design module maintained in a relational database containing plug-in information that is location, equipment, slot, connection and system specific.
