Subscription services, embraced by the software industry as an alternative to traditional product sales models, provide a stable revenue stream for vendors. Software as a Service, along with the associated Platform-as-a-Service, Network-as-a-Service, and Infrastructure-as-a-Service models, provide benefits to customers by shifting maintenance responsibilities to the vendor and trade off large capital expenditures for lower underwriting costs.

What is a Machine Template as a Service?

Following in the footsteps of the software industry, equipment manufacturers are beginning to adopt Machine-as-a-Service (“MaaS”) models, providing manufacturing equipment such as computerized numerical control (“CNC”) machines ) or automated manufacturing systems on a subscription basis.

Unlike a traditional leasing model with a fixed monthly or weekly payment, customers can make MaaS subscription payments based on usage or results, such as monthly payments based on the number of units produced.1 For example, in addition to sales of conventional air compressors, Kaeser Compressors, Inc. now offers a MaaS compressed air service with a subscription for a fixed amount of compressed air.2 The OEM takes on additional risk with the possibility that customer needs and corresponding revenues will decline, but can find a much larger market of willing customers, especially for newer or more advanced machines that would be pure purchases and simple very expensive.

Blockchain for asset tracking

Asset tracking is crucial to successfully running a MaaS-based business. Suppliers may collect operational data on manufacturing machinery, including hours of operation, units produced, and operating efficiency statistics or defects, and use the data both for price calculations and for maintenance purposes (such as identifying when preventive maintenance should take place). blockchain can collect this data directly on the machine through built-in sensors to provide parties with a immutable operational file. By using blockchain technology, the provider and the user can be sure that the operational figures are accurate and secure.3

In some cases, companies can use smart contracts based on data recorded in the blockchain to automatically execute arranged payments when manufacturing thresholds are reached. For example, SteamChain’s Secure Transaction Engine for Automated Machinery (“STEAM”) uses blockchain technology to generate tamper-proof performance records accessible by both end users and vendors, and to execute payment transactions in real time. .4 Pearson Packaging Systems uses STEAM to deliver packaging machinery under a MaaS model, with customers providing payments per case erected, sealed or palletized via smart contracts.5 By using blockchain to record case counts and execute payment, parties benefit from reduced human error and increased transparency.

Automated maintenance requests via smart contracts

Companies can use smart contracts to automatically schedule maintenance for deployed MaaS machines. Since updated data and statistics for each machine are recorded in the blockchain ledger, companies can automatically monitor the performance of each machine. If efficiency degrades or other faults occur, a smart contract can dynamically generate a service request. For paid service agreements, smart contracts can also process payments automatically.6

A blockchain ledger provides a permanent, immutable record of machine maintenance history, which potential buyers may find valuable when the seller sells used capital goods. Since each maintenance record is written to the general ledger with a timestamp and this timestamp is encoded in each to block, a bad actor would struggle to fake check-ins in the event of missed maintenance windows.seven

Dynamic configuration management

An end user may not want all of the available functionality provided by a particular machine. In conventional purchasing models, customers may have to buy a more advanced or more capable machine, at a proportionally higher cost, in order to meet certain requirements, effectively buying “more machine” than they want. . Conversely, if they cannot afford the capital expenditure, some customers will buy less advanced equipment or equipment that lacks desirable features. This can lead to an overall drop in productivity and quality.8

In a MaaS model, a provider can deploy their most advanced machines to customers with one or more features disabled. Because the machines are connected to the blockchain knots to record performance data, smart contracts can also be used to send configuration changes back to machines. For example, a customer can dynamically choose to enable a particular feature, and a smart contract will automatically process a payment or a subscription fee increase and trigger the configuration change for the corresponding machine.9

Legal Issues with MaaS Models on Blockchain

When considering adopting a blockchain-supported MaaS model, companies will need to assess the legal issues that come with it, such as:

Automating. Since many decisions are made in advance for the structure of a MaaS model, and these decisions are executed by smart contracts, parties will need to consider how to approach changes to agreed contractual terms. For example, if a machine requests maintenance but the customer prefers to postpone the maintenance, this cannot be done without the cooperation of the supplier, because the maintenance is automatically ordered. This is an important consideration because customers will likely want to have the final say in the service request as the payer, but the provider will likely have service requirements that they would prefer to have triggered automatically. Parties will need to be careful about whether a smart contract hosted on the blockchain has been programmed to be flexible or inflexible for tasks such as ordering maintenance.

Export control. Although dynamic configuration management may disable certain features on a blockchain-supported machine, parties will still need to comply with export control regulations and ensure that the controlled technology is not exported to any country. foreign in violation of export control laws. Under current export control regimes, licensing authorities will assess all capacities of exported machinery. Authorities are unlikely to issue licenses to export machines containing controlled technology that is not enabled, simply because a recipient might take steps to enable that technology. Unless equipment manufacturers program the blockchain solution to completely disable controlled functionality, licensing authorities are unlikely to relax export control regimes based solely on adopting a MaaS model.

“Right to repair”. The “right to repair” movement in the United States is growing and gaining influence in the policy-making process. In July 2021, President Biden issued an executive order directing the Federal Trade Commission (“FTC”) to issue rules to address “unfair anti-competitive restrictions on third-party repair or self-repair of items, such as restrictions imposed by powerful manufacturers that prevent farmers from repairing their own equipment.ten While subscription-based MaaS models supported by blockchain technology undoubtedly offer benefits to customers, they allow manufacturers to retain control of equipment long after a customer has purchased a subscription. Manufacturers and customers seeking to avail themselves of MaaS agreements should make it clear to the FTC, and to policymakers generally, that such agreements fall outside the scope of the anticompetitive conduct that the July 2021 Executive Order seeks to address. prevent.

Uniform Commercial Code. Although a MaaS model is generally characterized as a subscription service, it would likely be subject to Article 2A of the Uniform Commercial Code (“UCC”), which defines a lease as “a transfer of the right of possession and use of property for a term for consideration…”11 In the event of default by the Customer (Lessee), the Capital Goods Manufacturer (Lessor) shall have all remedies provided in Section 2A, including the right to recover the Machine.12 The manufacturer may want to take a backup security interest in the machine under UCC Section 9 and file a financing statement to ensure that their interest in the machine is a public record. The manufacturer should consider requalifying the lease as sale with retention of security, particularly if the customer has the right to purchase the machine at the end of the term at a reduced price by some or all of the payments already made.

Twenty-five million dollars has been set aside for repair work to address landslide issues with Park Road in Denali National Park and Preserve.

An area known as Pretty Rocks, about forty-five miles down Park Road, has seen an acceleration of landslides in recent years. Last summer, shifting earth caused the road to move more than half an inch a day.

Park officials have tried to keep up with road maintenance. In 2019, there were a few short-term maintenance closures. In 2020, the road was able to remain open all season. But in 2020, the deteriorating situation led the National Park Service to close the road at the end of August for the rest of the season.

Last fall, the Parks Service set up a page detailing the problems at Pretty Rocks. This page indicates that climate change is likely contributing to the current problems and that continued use of Park Road west of Pretty Rocks would require new, more expensive methods.

Now the National Park Service is considering building a bridge over the landslide.

On Thursday, US Secretary of the Interior Deb Haaland announced that $25 million from the recently passed bipartisan infrastructure bill will be used to make the necessary changes. All three members of Alaska’s congressional delegation applauded the funding for Denali National Park.

Before construction of the bridge can begin, the project must go through a environmental assessment process. This assessment allows for a public comment period, which is open until February 13.

A division chamber of the Madras High Court on Tuesday upheld a recent verdict of a single judge ordering the liquidation of the private jetliner SpiceJet Limited and ordering the official liquidator attached to the High Court to take over the company’s assets .

Considering that the appellant company had not established any grounds for allowing the appeal, the bench of Justices Paresh Upadhyay and Sathi Kumar Sukumara Kurup today dismissed the appeal preferred by the private carrier.

The appeal challenged the December 6 order of Justice R Subramaniam on various grounds.

The magistracy, however, extended the operation of the suspension granted by the single judge, until January 28 to allow the plane to appeal to the Supreme Court. The single judge had suspended the execution of his order for a limited period with the order to the company to return 5 million US dollars, as a condition precedent to take advantage of the interim measure.

Meanwhile, a spokesperson for SpiceJet said that “the company is reviewing the order and will take appropriate corrective action in accordance with legal advice received.”

The charge against SpiceJet was that it had failed to honor its commitment to pay the invoices of over US $ 24 million raised by a Swiss company for the maintenance, repair and overhaul of engines and engine components. the plane.

Originally, while allowing the request of Credit Suisse AG, the joint stock company registered under the laws of Switzerland, the single judge found that the airliner had failed miserably to pass the test at three prongs suggested by the Supreme Court in a similar case and had therefore made itself liable to liquidation for its inability to pay its debts under section 433 (e) of the Companies Act of 1956.

The company’s petition had requested the liquidation of SpiceJet under the provisions of the Companies Act 1956 and the appointment of the official liquidator of the High Court as liquidator of SpiceJet with full powers under section 448 of the Companies Act to take charge of its assets, property, business and books of account.

According to the petitioner, SpiceJet had used the services of SR Technics, Switzerland, for the maintenance, repair and overhaul of aircraft engines, modules, components, assemblies and parts, which were mandatory for its operations. . A 10-year agreement for such services was concluded between SpiceJet and SR Technics on November 24, 2011. Payment terms have also been agreed.

On August 24, 2012, a supplemental agreement was also entered into to modify certain terms of the agreement.

The changes included an extension of the deadline for payment of sums due under various invoices issued by SR Technics as well as a deferred payment program. As there had been a general increase in costs, the 2012 Supplementary Agreement provided for an adjustment in flight hour rates and arrangements for escalation were also made. The petitioner had repeatedly asked SpiceJet to make payments for the various invoices.

Not having honored his commitment under the agreements with SR Technics and not being able to meet his financial obligations, the petitioner issued a formal notice. In the absence of a response, he preferred the company’s petition to the High Court to wind up SpiceJet and obtained a favorable order.

Badly, SpiceJet preferred the call.

SpiceJet claimed to have reached an agreement with the Swiss company for a period of 10 years in 2011.

However, halfway through, he found out that the aircraft maintenance company did not have a valid authorization from the Director General of Civil Aviation between January 1, 2009 and May 18, 2015. The Single Judge had assumed wrongly that SpiceJet had entered into the agreement despite the knowledge of the lack of approval of the DGCA and considered that it could have terminated the contract halfway as soon as it had knowledge of the lack of official approval.

Termination was not a mandatory requirement. Once he (SpiceJet) learned of the fact, he stopped the payments. There was no finding in the arbitration award that the air carrier was aware of the non-approval even before entering into the deal, the appeal said, adding that an “illegal claim” for dues would fall. not from the definition of “debts” as stated. in the Companies Act.

Additional Director General of Police (Law and Order) Prashant Kumar said on Sunday that the state police are committed to conducting the upcoming parliamentary elections in a fair and transparent manner.

He said 95 state assembly constituencies had been identified as election sensitive.

ADG Kumar told reporters that in the seven rounds of voting between February 10 and March 7, 92,821 polling stations and a total of 1,744,351 polling stations would be set up. He said there was an increase of 2.24% at polling stations and 18.45% at polling stations compared to the 2017 elections. Kumar claimed that the physical verification of all stations vote had been taken.

Kumar said instructions had been issued for crowd control in the pits. He said a separate electoral register would be kept in all state police stations to record information relating to the elections. Apart from that, instructions were issued for the maintenance, repair, cleaning of weapons, provision of riot gear and other safety equipment and tools, he added.

Regarding the prevention of the abuse of illicit alcohol during the elections, the ADG indicated that 31 checkpoints had been jointly established by the excise and police services at the international (Nepalese border) and interstate borders. , on which the officials of the excise service as well as the police force would also be present.

He said 2,676 CCTV cameras and 71 static jammers had been installed in various prisons across the state to closely monitor the activities of criminals housed in the prisons.

Kumar said 275 of these criminals had been identified in the districts and 869 held in prisons who could indirectly disrupt the elections, so their activities were being monitored.

The ADG said 95 constituencies in Uttar Pradesh were marked sensitive for various reasons at the initial stage ahead of the elections. He said that seven districts of Uttar Pradesh, namely Pilibhit, Maharajganj, Siddharthnagar, Bahraich, Balrampur, Shravasti, Lakhimpur Kheri, were bordered by Nepal and that 14 constituencies of these districts were adjacent to the Nepalese border while the borders of 30 UP districts were linked to nine other states.

He said that for effective control of criminals and illegal contraband, 107 checkpoints would be set up at the international border and 469 at the interstate border, where regular checks would be carried out around the clock by deploying security forces. police in three teams and install CCTV cameras. He said the Covid protocol would be followed.

The ADG said it was a challenge for the police to conduct the assembly elections in a peaceful and fair manner and that the police would deliver it with dedication, integrity, hard work, available resources and new technology.

LEWISTON – The Tuscarora Indian School community has worked hard to create a beautiful learning space for the over 100 students who study there. Hallways adorned with painted bricks and artwork, walls displaying life-size murals, and many hand-made decorations all celebrate the rich history and culture of the Indigenous people of Niagara County.

But a closer look at those same walls reveals another picture. The masonry of the school is collapsing. Water damage is apparent throughout the building. Obsolete infrastructure keeps maintenance personnel on their toes.

While the conditions at Tuscarora School – which caters for Kindergarten to Grade 6 students – are well known to the Niagara-Wheatfield School District, there is little that can be done locally to address them. This is because the school, despite being part of the North West District, is one of three state-owned educational institutions serving Indigenous students, and the state is responsible for their maintenance.

The New York Department of Education has requested additional funding for these buildings over the coming year, which school officials in the area say is long overdue. Niagara-Wheatfield Superintendent Dan Ljiljanich said the state has a dedicated building maintenance budget line for all of the schools it owns, including the three schools located on Indigenous lands, as well than several others for blind and deaf students, which has not been increased. in a long time.

“They share about $ 3 million (per year) for all these buildings to be repaired,” Ljiljanich said. “I think our district puts it in the best perspective. Over the past six years, we have completed approximately $ 55 million in capital work for the rest of our district. During the same period, New York State spent less than $ 200,000 on Tuscarora Elementary School. If you divide that by five buildings … that’s about $ 11 million per building.

He added that even when work is planned, sometimes an urgent problem arises in another of the public schools and needs to be addressed immediately. It ends up taking money from the school it was originally budgeted for.

“There isn’t enough for everyone,” said Ljiljanich.

Conditions

The situation at all three schools – including the Onondaga Nation School near Syracuse and the St. Regis Mohawk School in the far north of the state – is similar: crumbling bricks, outdated systems, deterioration concrete and other maintenance issues. Their respective districts have been asking the state for more financial support for their schools for years, with little success.

Elizabeth Corieri, longtime principal of Tuscarora School, agreed the building needs a lot of attention, including an upgrade to the water system, as students currently depend on bottled water for drink. She also said the heating system is unpredictable and difficult to control, and the school is in need of window repairs and internet upgrades.

“In the past five years in particular, no capital projects have been carried out at school, possibly even longer than that,” she said. “So every year it’s just (the) frustration to put the same things on a five-year capital project plan and nothing gets accomplished. “

Bart Oddo, the chief caretaker of Tuscarora School, said that although things are done periodically, it was not enough to keep the building in the condition it should be.

“From being here for so long, I just see how they do it in increments, every 10 to 15 years,” he said. “We had some boilers modernized, just little things like that. But it got to a point where the outside, the bricks are falling. It takes a lot more work.

Oddo pointed out several areas of the school where the problems were visible. In a classroom, water damage could be observed along a window frame and in the ceiling tiles. The gymnasium’s glass block windows are cracking and the sidewalks leading to the building are uneven, posing a tripping hazard.

He added that the school still uses fuel oil to heat the building, as it does not have access to natural gas, and uses hot water tanks which have not been replaced since 2012 and 2013, but which do not. are only supposed to be good for six years. Chris Roma, a school worker, said most of the equipment that makes up the school’s water supply system is outdated and decades old.

While Oddo said the building is structurally sound and safe for occupancy, maintenance work should be done as soon as possible so that the problems do not escalate.

“It is always a matter of safety for the children,” he said. “That’s why we need upgrades. “

The cost

The calls for funding for the three schools were joined by the Neighbors of the Onondaga Nation group of the Syracuse Peace Council. The organization is asking New York to budget $ 60 million for state-owned Indigenous schools, as well as an additional $ 2 million per school per year for ongoing maintenance and improvements.

The group created a profile on The Action Network – a website that helps activists organize and fundraise for their causes – urging New York residents to write letters to Governor Kathy Hochul expressing support for the fundraising . As of Friday morning, 190 people had sent letters, slightly below the group’s target of 200.

Hochul’s office did not immediately respond to a request Thursday about whether funding Indigenous schools would be a priority as she finalizes her budget proposal for the coming year.

Andy Mager, an organizer for Neighbors of the Onondaga Nation, said their local Indigenous school had similar issues as the Tuscarora School, such as collapsing bricks, foundation issues and an outdated fire system. . He described the current method of funding these schools as “a ridiculous and archaic model”.

“They were among 14 public educational institutions that had a total annual budget of $ 3 million,” he said. “So over time there were needs for dry cleaners that weren’t met. “

According to Ljiljanich, the schools were originally asking for an initial investment of $ 20 million each to make all of the major repairs. But he said the district had managed to reduce that amount to around $ 12 million.

“This should get all of the work we’re talking about here,” he said, specifically highlighting the masonry work, water filtration upgrades, sidewalk repairs and roof replacement. “These are things that in all these other buildings would have been done. “

Funding on the horizon

In its budget priority letter, released in December, the state’s education department’s board of directors requested $ 40.5 million for the modernization and maintenance of school buildings. The fund would be used for the three Aboriginal schools as well as for deaf and blind students.

In the letter, the council acknowledges that these buildings have been underfunded for some time.

“The annual amount allocated to public school capital needs… has long been insufficient to meet the needs,” he says, “because it has been capped at $ 3.4 million for many years.

Senatorial Minority Leader Rob Ortt and Assembly Member Angelo Morinello – who represent districts that include the Tuscarora Reserve – both said securing fair funding for Indigenous schools was high on the agenda. their to-do list.

Ortt, R-North Tonawanda, sits on the Senate State Native American Relations Committee, and said school funding is a common theme when speaking to Indigenous residents of the state.

“I have held several meetings with indigenous nations in New York State to discuss the issues facing their peoples and governments and this continues to be a major concern,” Ortt said in a statement Friday. “I am also a co-sponsor of legislation that will establish a state office of Native American affairs that will help raise awareness and address these kinds of issues when they arise.”

Morinello, R-Niagara Falls, told the Gazette on Friday that he learned about Tuscarora School’s maintenance needs several years ago while working with the district on budget issues. He said last year he attended a Zoom meeting with superintendents from the three districts that oversee Indigenous schools to discuss construction issues.

He said the money offered by the Education Department is a start, but it doesn’t go far enough to make up for the lack of attention buildings have received over the years. He also noted that recent revelations about abuse at Native American Indian residential schools in the United States and Canada may help further underscore the need to invest in the education of Native students.

“I truly believe we did an injustice to Native Americans,” Morinello said. “It’s time to start recognizing our obligations to them. “

Like Morinello, local school officials also say that while the money offered by the Education Department is better than nothing, it is not the full answer.

Ljiljanich said districts must first see if the proposed lump sum is approved so that the initial repairs can begin. From there, he said, the focus should be on the future.

“We need to make sure that a fair and equitable amount is then set aside each year for the repairs that all of our buildings need each year,” he said.

The superintendent said that learning about the challenges facing native schools in New York City has “really brought to light” the difficulties faced by native people in the United States. a responsibility he should have taken on from the start.

Corieri echoed Ljiljanich’s sentiments, saying that while she is optimistic the state will be okay, she wishes it hadn’t been so bad initially.

“It’s just not fair,” Corieri said. “The children are there, they want to learn. They are so smart and talented and it’s just a shame the building is not being maintained. And it’s shocking that New York State is giving up.

Trade deals at Roswell Air Center continued to dominate local economic development headlines in 2021, but other growths have included real estate developments and work on large industrial projects.

A major development at Roswell Air Center during the year was the arrival of a new corporate tenant. AEVEX Aerospace, based in Solana Beach, Calif., Announced to the public in June that it had purchased the Matrix Group in April. The Matrix companies included the former Matrix International Security Training Intelligence Center (MISTIC) site on Will Rogers Road.

Negotiations on the new widebody hangar for Arizona-based Ascent Aviation Services advanced during the year. Ascent Aviation announced in September 2020 that it plans to open a maintenance, repair and overhaul operation in Roswell at the Air Center, ultimately hiring up to 360 aircraft maintenance and support staff. When the company begins operations in the spring or summer of 2022, it is expected to have at least 100 employees and an annual payroll of $ 7 million.

The company is planning a two-phase hangar project, with the first phase involving a structure 10 stories high and 300 feet long by 300 feet wide.

The fabric hanger will be located on the grounds of the Air Center at the corner of West Earl Cummings Loop and Mathis Street. The city and county signed legal agreements that allowed the city to move ahead with construction work while using $ 3 million of the county’s $ 5 million in capital spending.

Among other major economic news for the city, New Mexico real estate developers unveiled their plans in April 2021 for a large residential development in northwest Roswell, on Sycamore Avenue and West Country Club Road.

The Oaks is a joint venture of MAC Real Estate Inc. of Albuquerque and DWD Consulting of Piñon and could have up to 800 single family homes. One of DWD Consulting’s partners said his company has completed a similar project in Hobbs, selling the last homes in 2021 after six years of work on the project.

A new development, El Toro Housing Community, is also under construction in South Roswell, near South Main and Gayle streets. The builder, Artisan’s Guild Construction LLC of Lovington, began work in July on the first phase of the development that could eventually have 97 homes.

City of Roswell Community Development Director Kevin Maevers announced in September that several entities had filed plans to build or renovate commercial and office developments. One of the plans is for a new retail center on North Main Street near Tierra Berrenda that will include a Texas Roadhouse restaurant, with the catering company confirming plans to open its first location here. Another project involves the purchase of the Wilshire Mall by Olive Tree Investments Inc., an investor group that includes residents of Roswell. The group is planning a “major” renovation of the North Main Street and East Mescalero Road shopping center which was originally built in 1968. The investor group plans to bring a few new businesses to the city, including a fast food restaurant. -food Popeye’s.

In August, Admiral Beverage Corp. opened its large warehouse and distribution center in southeast Roswell at 515 E. Brasher Road. Company officials said they plan to hire an additional seven people once construction of the 110,000-square-foot facility is completed.

Roswell’s operations have been around for approximately 20 years and now employ approximately 68 people, with a current distribution site on South Atkinson Avenue. Seven new hires would increase the annual payroll for Roswell operations by approximately $ 303,000. The company, which distributes alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages in seven states, intends to work with the city to issue up to $ 9 million in industrial revenue bonds to be paid by the company and its subsidiaries to fund the new installation.

Leprino Foods Co., the city’s largest private employer with around 600 workers, continues to modernize its Roswell plant on Omaha Road. On June 10, Roswell City Council approved the order that allowed the company to issue up to $ 60 million more in industrial revenue bonds to pay for a second phase of upgrades, described as improvements to the sanitation system and public services. A first phase of renovations, funded by around $ 90 million in industrial revenue bonds, involved the construction of a new wet whey facility and freezer, with work starting on these projects in 2019.

Leprino, a global company, has been operating in Roswell in the Omaha plant for about 28 years, with the plant being about 30 years old.

On December 28, Tom Krumland, owner of Krumland Auto Group, presented the company’s plans to the City of Roswell Planning and Zoning Commission for an expansion of car dealerships on West Second Street, to include a new Ford dealership. Construction costs are estimated at $ 25 million.
