Beijing - Aeolus Tire has implement what it describes as a life cycle analysis system for its tyre manufacturing. The company claims it will be the first in China to use the new approach.
The system tracks and identifies all components in the factory using a barcode system. This helps to track energy consumption and also to track quality. The first trials were carried out in January 2010
Since April 2011, this production based system has been integrated with a on-vehicle fleet tyre management system system using GPS as a way to understand better how the tyres are used in service.
