Goodyear Engineered Products has a new online tracking system (Goodyear Hose Trakker Online) that monitors hose assemblies from pre-installation through the life of the product. This Web-based tool is available only to Goodyear Star distributors and allows customers to access hose-assembly records with the click of a mouse.

According to Keith Collett, Goodyear's industrial-hose marketing manager, the new program monitors inventories, product locations, maintenance schedules and test history of industrial hose assemblies.

The program, jointly developed with Wetaskiwin InfoChip Systems, initially uses serial-number tags installed by Star distributors that identify hose assemblies. Next-generation hoses will use radio-frequency identification microchips to further simplify the identification and tracking process.
