About Systems Radio

Systems Radio is a podcast targeted at the professional systems engineer but also those interested in Systems Thinking and Systems Science. The goal is to be a lasting educational resource, not a newscast. Every month, a new episode is published that covers all systems related topics such as systems thinking, systems theory, systems engineering and other relevant topics such as domain engineering, formal methods, complex systems, ontology engineering, etc. Episodes are either tutorials on a specific topic, or an interview with a well-known person from the systems world. Besides Systems we will also cover other schemas besides Systems such as Patterns, Forms, Domains and Worlds.

All Systems Radio episodes are original content – we do not record conferences or talks given in other venues. Most episodes are comprised of two speakers to ensure a lively listening experience.

Systems Radio is an independent and non-commercial organization. All content is licensed under the Creative Commons 2.5 license.

The concept of Systems Engineering Radio originated in Jan 2010 by Kent Palmer, with the approval of Markus Voelter of Software Engineering Radio (SE-Radio.net), and was launched in partnership with Larry Earnest and Tim Weilkiens in July 2010



Episode Zero

Episode Zero Introduction to Systems Radio

Fri, 07/02/2010 - 23:00 — palmer

Systems Radio is aligned with SE-Radio.net which is the Software Engineering Technical Podcast. However, SystemsRadio.net focuses on Systems Thinking, Systems Science, Systems Engineering and other cognate subjects like Domain Engineering, Ontological Engineering, Model Based Engineering. Episode Zero introduces the concept of the SystemsRadio.net podcast and discusses a little about each of the subject areas to be covered. SystemsRadio.net is meant to be the next higher level of abstraction from the Software Engineering Radio podcast as it appears in industry within companies where the Systems Engineers deal with the entire life-cycle and take responsibility for the whole delivered system working as promised and work with Hardware and Software Engineers to achieve a working system. Systems Engineering normally deals with very large and very complex systems which cannot be handled by Hardware Engineering or Software Engineering alone. However, Systems Engineering is only one approach to the Systems Schema and there are other approaches such as Systems Science in Engineering and a more popular version of this approach called Systems Thinking. This podcast describes the range of subjects that will be dealt with in various series of interviews and tutorials by the core team which is creating this podcast. Your hosts are Larry Earnest who interviews Kent Palmer, and there is a trailer with comments by Tim Weilkiens.

Episode One

Episode One: Introduction to Systems Science with Len Troncale


Sat, 10/16/2010 - 06:05 — palmer
systems science

This is an interview concerning the Systems Science approach of Len Toncale, Emeritus professor of Cal State Pomona. It is the first in a series of interviews and discussions of his theories of the System of Systems Processes he has developed over the years. The interviewer believes that this is the closest thing to a Systems Knowledge base that could be the basis of a Systems Engineering curriculum.

Tutorial One

Introduction of Systems Radio at INCOSE-LA Mini-Conference

Fri, 10/29/2010 - 23:25 — palmer

Podcasting is a new way to make contact with practitioners and to foster educational opportunities for the field of Systems Engineering. A new podcast called SystemsRadio.net seeks to bring interviews and tutorials on Systems Engineering, Systems Science and Systems Thinking to practitioners. It is an attempt to increase awareness of the portfolio of concepts, methods and tools that are available to the working Systems Engineer in order to augment his or her expertise with the foundational knowledge necessary to be effective in building Systems.

Beginning Systems Radio

We have begun producing podcasts about Systems Thinking, Systems Science and Systems Engineering in a similar format established by Software Engineering Radio (SE-RADIO.NET). Please listen to Episode Zero for more information concerning future episodes and our intentions

SystemsRadio.net site open for participation


The new systemsradio.net website is now open for business. If you have any suggestions for improvements they would be appreciated.

The only content at the moment is the Episode Zero AudioCast and a couple of blog posts.

We are hoping to bring you more content in the future, however the site revolves around the AudioCasts and that will be the main attraction for the foreseeable future.

Due to the fact that there is an environment of spam and malicious robots on the internet authentication and Captcha are not enough to ensure that the users are people with good intent. Therefore the authentication process does not give immediate access to all site content. In order to get that access you have to be upgraded to a Normal User. If this does not happen in a reasonable amount of time, like a couple of days, then email the site administrator atsystemsradio@gmail.com and ask to be upgraded for full access. We do this upgrade on the basis of the information you provide about yourself in your Profile. So the more you tell us about yourself and your interest in systems the easier that will be.

So please bear with the prolonged registration process. We have to make sure you are human and actually interested in the contents of the site before we let you have full access to the site for security reasons.

Thanks,

System Administrator


Announced Systems Radio at INCOSE-LA Mini-conference

I gave a talk at the INCOSE-LA Mini-conference on the new SystemsRadio.net podcast. Len Troncale was also there talking about his idea of having a new Systems Pathology society.

The most interesting other speaker in my opinion was Izad Madni who spoke on Human Frailty and what that means for Systems Design. About five people came up to me to discuss the idea of Systems Radio after the talk, but the reception of the idea by the audience seemed positive, but there was no noticeable overt enthusiasm. I am hoping the local INCOSE chapter will contributed toward the effort to some degree as they have the contacts that will make finding prospective interviewees possible. After the conference about five downloads of the first episode which was put up the night before the conference occurred. Site traffic went up a little bit. I also placed an audio of my talk and the associated briefing in the tutorial section as the first entry there.

New Proposed Q&A site at Stack Exchange for Systems Science


Stack Exchange QnA site proposal: Systems Science http://bit.ly/gvBJW0

I have proposed a Q&A site at Stack Exchange Area 51. Please support this proposal.

Stack Exchange can be a good place to ask questions and glean answers that are technical and it is well managed. If you log in you can propose questions that are on and off topic for Systems Science. We have to go through a definition, commitment, and beta process to see if the group is accepted.

I think it would be a good companion site for our efforts here.

Second in the series of Interviews with Len Troncale on Systems Processes
