Abstract:

The incorporation of InternetIntranet technology into used oil analysis laboratories provides cost effective, powerful solutions for operational needs and customer requirements. An Internet based application also has reduced requirements for development, deployment, and maintenance when compared to client server systems. Also, InternetIntranet technology can coexist with existing client server systems, providing to the laboratory enhanced and expanded functionality to support changing requirements. Laboratories can realize the power of InternetIntranet technology in two major areas. First, Internet based laboratory applications provide a dynamic mechanism for information distribution to customers. Delivery of analysis reports by fax, mail, and BBS is replaced by e-mail delivery and on demand information access by customers. Since many oil analysis customers are very mobile, remote access to their information via Internet technologies such as e-mail and laboratory websites offers a significant benefit to the customer. Second, with an Internet based application accessed via the Internet or a corporate Intranet a private model of the Internet, samples can be received and tested at any number of remote sites with the information transferred to the central laboratory database via the Internet based application. The central location can access the same central laboratory database and develop sample analysis and evaluation reports for distribution to customers.
