Glenn Thomas, Senior Data Scientist, presented 'R in Industry – Application of Pipe Renewal Planning', at the IASC/NZSA 2017 Conference. Glenn demonstrated some of the practical tools Harmonic has developed using R to assist in asset management. R has become an increasingly used tool in industry to practically help councils and organisations with their asset management challenges.
Glenn demonstrated the recent analytics work for a New Zealand council that experienced challenges in long term planning around its three waters infrastructure. Advanced Analytics and data visualisation helped support infrastructural investment decision making and risk assessment.
