New process for outgoing machines

Effective today (1/4/19), completed builds will be placed in the grey cabinets in the Milne 213A hallway rather than the metal shelves in 213.  Each cabinet is numbered and the cabinets will be labeled with dry-erase markers to indicate which ticket is where and what items are included.

Intake

Shipping/Receiving techs will be responsible for labeling each cabinet with the ticket number and checklist of all the equipment included with the ticket.  They will make note in the ticket of which cabinet is assigned for the machine and peripherals.  Any items which have not yet arrived from the vendor will be labeled as PENDING; this label will be removed when the item arrives and has been moved from the mailroom into the outgoing cabinet.

Builds

Machines awaiting builds will still be found on the metal racks in 213.  When you complete a build, bring it to the allocated cabinet and check the box to show that it’s in the cabinet and ready to go.  Update the ticket indicating that the build is complete and the machine has been placed in the cabinet.  The Location field in the CN Build/Rebuild and CN Device/Application Support forms have been updated to include Outgoing Cabinet; the cabinet number will be required.

Placements

When placing a machine, the placing tech is responsible for ensuring that all of the peripherals are present.  If there is anything labeled as PENDING, use a marker to indicate what you have placed and leave the info written on the cabinet; if everything is present, use a paper towel and a bit of Windex (both are next to the cabinets) to erase the entire entry.
