Radio PI: The podcast for critical operations
What have industrial professionals learned from decades of using sensor-based data to improve operations? Radio PI, the latest podcast for critical operations, explores just that. Whether addressing cultural issues of getting buy-in for enterprise-wide digital transformation, enabling buildings to work smarter not harder, or using real-time data visualization to improve safety, Radio PI will explore the unparalleled value of sensor-based data.
In the launch episode, airing on December 9th, OSIsoft founder Dr. J. Patrick Kennedy describes the sensor-based data toolset every production engineer needs, what he’s done right and wrong in 40 years in the business, and the truth about his high school diploma.
Radio PI features working data infrastructure professionals, engineering consultants, and sensor-based data specialists. Experts will discuss digital transformation project implementation details, best practices, and potential pitfalls.
"We're excited to start a series where we can get into the details" said Cristin Balog, OSIsoft's director of marketing communication. "We've talked to thousands of customers over the years, and they've told us what works, what doesn't, what they planned, and what was a surprise benefit. We're inviting back our most popular conference presenters from the past 20 years of user conferences," Balog said "because those are the folks whose success stories and things to avoid you won't hear anywhere else."
Listen to guests recount how they’ve used Wi-Fi data to measure building capacity, how they’ve improved the reliability of wells in a vast oil field with inexpensive wireless sensors, and how dividing their continuous operation into discrete events lets them discern previously missed failure modes. "The success stories stack up… with a lot of cross-fertilization between industries" said Balog. "My favorite part is the lightning round at the end about the oddities of working in operations--that's not something you hear outside of the plants" she said.
Radio PI will feature guests from all the major industrial sectors such as oil and gas, utilities, life sciences, mining, chemicals, and food and beverage. Radio PI launches on Wednesday December 9th and can be viewed as video on demand here and as a free-to-subscribe podcast on iTunes, Spotify, and Google podcasts.
