Historien om The Great Gatsby prøvede at vise, kan rigdom bringe ubegrænset adgang til mennesker, steder og muligheder. Men i sidste ende vil det ikke bringe lykke. Kun når vi starter ud med de bedste hensigter vil vi komme ude at nyde frugten af vores ærlige arbejde.

 

Lyde melodramatisk, ikke sandt? Tja, nogle grotesk, grund, skabe rigdom synes at inspirere bedste og værre i mennesker. Alle op-og nedture af aktiemarkedet skal have tilsvarende hundredvis af historier om mennesker, hvis liv blev knyttet til den ubønhørlige flow af rigdom og ud af folks liv.

 

Og endnu, det hele starter med det første skridt, hver enkelt af disse aktiemarkedet investorer tog, og fra da af, læring reb af investering i aktier og aktier. Hver af dem skal stadig værner om mindet om deres første salvo ind i verden af investering. Ligesom det er ethvert menneskes konstante ønske om at holde erindringen om deres første dag i skole eller deres første baseball spil eller deres første dato. For investorer symboliseret deres første penge opnået fra lagre deres billet til større velstand og flere muligheder.

 

Dyb blå publikationer gruppe forstår de lille og store motivationer, at fremdrive folk at investere i aktiemarkedet. Objektivt, kræver investerer dog en masse tid i kedelige og trivielle analyse af fakta og tal. Ligesom at lære et sprog, indebærer det øve endeløse linjer af bøjning af udsagnsord og grammatiske øvelser. Dyb blå publikationer gruppe ønsker, at hver potentiel investor til at gå gennem hele processen med at vide, hvordan aktier og aktier opfører, hvad påvirker deres værdi og deres priser og hvordan man kan måle risiciene involveret på hvert punkt på måde.

 

Hver investor starter ud i aktiemarkedet at investere behov en mentor, der har nok erfaring og viden, der kan vise vejen gennem og ud af de vanskelige og mørke stier til rigdom og sikkerhed. Hårdt arbejde altid betaler sig, så meget mere i aktiemarkedet at investere. Men har nogen derude med dig vejlede hvert skridt af vejen, gør rejsen mindre vanskelige og udfordrende. Det kan endda være en garanti for ens succes.

 

Men vi, som almindelige mennesker, har alle betænkeligheder og klager over hvordan vi billetpris og hvordan andre beskæftige sig med os. Succes ikke altid smile over os hver dag; Derfor skal vi også lære at tage godt med onde selv i investering. Endnu når vi gør vores hjemmearbejde og bor og arbejder ved de afprøvede principper, som den erfarne har delt med os, kan vi finde at de fleste af tid, vi kan høste en god høst.

 

Tanken om at blive medejer af en virksomhed ved at investere i sine aktier har en gribende appel til mange mennesker. Det repræsenterer den angiveligt delte fælles indsats og interesse, som alle investorerne har efter visse bestande. Hele processen kan synes upersonlige og remote; men det er blevet skabt af mennesker, der har indsigten og hjertet til at have rigdom deles ligeligt, hvis det er muligt, blandt mange mennesker, uanset deres station i livet.

 

Lære reb af aktiemarkedet at investere kræver kom ned til realiteterne og fastsættelse af dit fundament for en frugtbar oplevelse; men det kræver også af mennesker til at se ud over nøgletal og beskæftiger sig med sind og hjerter af mennesker, der omfatter industrien. Og den bedste måde at gøre det er at beskæftige sig med ens egne motiver og forventninger. Uden denne afgørende element i processen bliver investere andet end tælle penge og ikke et eventyr til selverkendelse.

Coping with the dynamic design process

The design process of our projects is very dynamic. It includes a lot of trial and error and goes through many iterations as it has many disciplines that all have their relevant input. The final outcome is generally a combination of multiple propositions.

In the example of a plant layout for a bulk handling installation, the installation is built with bunkers, conveyors, hoppers and buildings housing process equipment. Usually such installations are connected with existing installations, surrounding our project. In some cases, our installation will be interacting with future projects and must already give an impression of that future installation.

Designing a layout in 2D

In the past the design of such projects was completely executed in 2D. Plant layout was really easy in the initial stages. A bunker could be represented by a simple rectangle, the belts conveyor was copied from earlier projects and was then literally ‘stretched’ to give an early indication of the possibilities. This process is still common practice for new projects and is somewhat a combination of claiming space for each component, exploring technical possibilities and already providing technical drawings to explain the design to clients, subcontractors or sometimes government institutes.

Plant_Design_2D_and_3D_pic1.png 

Presenting drawings to our customers in an early stage of the design process is much easier when that process is executed in 2D.

PLM techniques such as option modeling cannot provide a solution for such design issues, since more than 90% of the components in the installation are engineered to order. Creo’s Design Exploration Extension on the other hand is a tool that might prove itself useful in stages such as layout design.

 

Design a layout in 3D

Designing a layout in 3D is believed to be more efficient since clashes can be detected.It no longer requires designers to manipulate their design on multiple sheets and views.

Designing that same layout in a 3D environment has proven to be possible, however it is a tough exercise in the use of the Advanced Assembly Extensions and PLM interactions, but enables multiple users to work on that design simultaneously.

As 3D models aren’t just simply stretched, moved or resized, it took much more effort to provide the 3D layout with a level of detail similar to that of the 2D layout drawings.

Eventually the 3D layout resulted in a series of models roughly indicating the positions and sizes of all components. During the following modeling of detailed assemblies, the layout models could gradually be replaced with more adequate models.

Plant_Design_2D_and_3D_pic2.jpgPlant_Design_2D_and_3D_pic3.jpg

A Layout module in Creoenables early stage sketching to be used in the next modeling steps, but is as far as we know not designed to replace a genuine 2D technical drafting environment. It will not produce the kind of drawings the clients and designers are accustomed to today.

 

Integrating 3D models onto technical drawings or vice versa.

The information that is used to eventually produce a resulting design proposition is presented to us in all shapes, sizes and formats. In some cases, the information is avaliable in a simple sketch only. In a recent case, the client preferred to incorporate some of the civil engineering of a future project into the actual project, without a single model being avaliable of that future project. The assignment presented to the designer was to “indicate where a similar component could be positioned in the future, but quickly rotating and rescale it and modify the orientation of the conveyor feeding the installation.”

Plant_Design_2D_and_3D_pic4.jpg

We believe that in such cases a designer would like to have acces to quick and simple drafting tools, not just sketching tools in his 3D environment, and have the ability to add information to his drawings that is not available in his 3D models.

How much is Indonesian billionaire Peter Sondakh willing to pay to get back some of the telecom towers he sold nearly a decade ago?

 

That is the question as the growing tower business, which is booming due to the explosive growth in data with the number of smartphone users soaring, is a lucrative side of the business with telecom companies eager to expand their network coverage.

 

Indonesia, the most populous country in South-East Asia with 240 million people, has mobile penetration rates of 122% and 278 million mobile users.

 

As it is, Indonesia is already the fourth largest mobile market in the world.

 

Globally, tower companies are emerging like never before as telecom companies sell or spin off their tower business.

 

A report said towers make up the bulk of their capital investments and, in emerging markets, account for most of their operating costs. As a result, mobile operators are opting to share towers - renting them from other telcos or tower companies instead of making ongoing financial investments in infrastructure.

 

“Tower businesses are promising because they have a large profit margin that can reach above 40%,’’ adds another report.

 

Perhaps it is the steady cashflow from the tower business that has lured him back into the business.

 

Sondakh is Indonesia’s eighth richest man with a net worth of US$2.5bil as at March last year according to Forbes. He is founder and owner of the Rajawali Group, an industrial conglomerate, which operates in telecommunication, hotel, cement, consumer goods, retail, department store, and transportation businesses in Indonesia.

 

His Rajawali group via Nusantara Infrastructure has been wanting to expand the telecoms tower business.

 

Nusantara entered the tower business not long ago when it bought 39.55% equity stake in Tara Cell Intrabuana via Telekom Infrastructure for 598 billion rupiah.

 

That acquisition marked Rajawali’s return to the telecommunication tower business after selling its stake in PT Excelcomindo to Telekom Malaysia Bhd.

 

It was in 2005 that Sondakh sold an initial chunk of his stake or 27.3% in XL when it was at its historical high of 27 US cents a share to TM International Bhd, a unit of Telekom for US$314mil. TM International was hived off and renamed Axiata, and PT Excelcomindo is now known as XL Axiata.

 

“Had he kept the tower business, he would be in an envious position now,’’ says an expert.

 

But Sandokh in an interview in 2009 said “never get emotional with business; if you think you’ve maximised your profit, it’s time to get out ... the most difficult thing in life is selling, the easiest thing is buying.”

 

Later he sold his remaining 16% stake in Excelcomindo to UAE’s Etisalat, pocketing US$438mil.

 

“After pocketing all that money, he wants to return to the telecoms business. Perhaps it is the promising profits in the tower business that got him excited again,’’ says the industry experts.

 

But things are not going to as easy as there are already several suitors eyeing such assets.

 

 

3,000 towers

 

Up for grabs are 3,000 towers that XL Axiata has put up for sale since July.

 

XL Axiata is 66.5% owned by Axiata Bhd, and the sale of the towers is to raise cash to pare down debts.

 

XL Axiata president director Hasnul Suhaimi earlier said the company would sell a number of its towers to pay US$865mil debt used to acquire PT Axis Telekom Indonesia in March.

 

XL Axiata, previously the third-largest phone operator in Indonesia, is now ranked second with 68.5 million customers as of the first quarter of this year, after acquiring Axis.

 

Instead of opting for a floatation of the tower business, XL has called for bids to sell a portion of the towers, which is likely to raise more than US$500mil.

 

“Owners of telco towers in Indonesia are increasingly selling or spinning off these assets to cut capital spending and maintenance costs.

 

“Each tower is said to be worth about 1.2 billion rupiah ($103,000) on average,’’ says a report.

 

This is also the second time XL is calling a tender for the sale of its towers, the first was to sell 7,000 towers in 2009. That exercise was cancelled.

 

The other suitors keen on the towers are said to be Tower Bersama, PT Solusi Tunas Pratama Tbk, Protelindo, a unit of PT Sarana Menara Nusantara, and Retower, a unit of PT Centratama Telekomunikasi Indonesia, Tunas Pratama, Inti Bangun Sejahtera, and Sondakh’s interest is via Komet Infrastructure Nusantara, a unit of Nusantara Infrastructure.

 

There are 60,000 towers in Indonesia, of which 60% are said to be owned by telecom companies and the rest by independent companies.

 

Indonesia is the second largest tower market in Asia after India and both Tower Bersama and Protelindo have over 9,000 towers each in the country.

 

“Since there are several suitors, the factor that will distinguish one from the other is the pricing and the lease back arrangements. Sondakh would have to put up a high bid if he wants to get the business,’’ says an expert.

 

Earlier, Ramdani Basri, the president director of Nusantara, was reported to have said that the company has been seeking for a strategic opportunity to expand into the telecommunications tower businesses.

 

But there is more than meets the eye as some say Sondakh and parties in XL are friendly, and that gives an edge over others.

 

Still, the process has to be transparent and all parties given a fair chance, says an expert.

 

 

The e.co factor

Which way the fight will go will remain to be seen, but to complicate matters, there is talk that Axiata’s newly formed e.co (edotco) may be interested to bid for XL Axiata.

 

But someone in the know claims that “e.co will not bid. It will not break Indonesian laws and will stay out of the bidding.’’

 

Indonesia’ law does not allow for foreign ownership of tower companies and that should put to rest speculation that e.co, which was set up in June this year, will make its move.

 

“Ideally it should bid because the purpose of setting up e.co is to grow the tower business, but the situation is a bit different in Indonesia,’’ says someone in the know.

 

For now, the tower assets from Celcom Axiata Bhd have been transferred into e.co.

 

It is unclear if the other companies with towers within the Axiata stable can transfer their assets into e.co. The long term goal is to float that business.

 

But in the case of XL, would a floatation be better than selling the towers?

 

And will the sale solve all its debt woes and guarantee reasonable lease back rates, or will it have more issues that it bargained for?

 

XL officials were not immediately available for comments.

 

Axiata Group is 38.8% owned by Khazanah Nasional Bhd. It has mobile operations in Indonesia, Singapore, India, Bangladesh and Cambodia. It has over 250 million mobile subscribers in Asia and recorded revenue of RM2.55bil at the end of 2013. XL has over 65 million subscribers.

Quote Edward Ricardo Braithwaite on TeachingThis message popped up in my Twitter stream yesterday morning and I felt compelled to write up an answer immediately...

 

Edward Ricardo Braithwaite (born June 27, 1920), a novelist, writer, teacher, and diplomat, is best known for his stories of social conditions and racial discrimination. In this context, the quote makes perfect sense. Of course, we are result-oriented people and as long as we acquire the knowledge we need to accomplish a task, we shouldn’t worry about the teacher’s ethnicity, social background, upbringing or anything.

 

However, if we port this quote into our context of product development professionals and software training, I think there are a few more things to take into consideration about picking your teacher.

 

The goal for any training engagement is to get from state A – being  “unaware” (or untrained) to state B – being an “informed” (trained) person. We would like to make this metamorphosis efficiently too, that is we would like to reach the highest possible result with the least investment. I believe there are three, if not more, factors you should consider when picking your teaching authority:

 

Trust


You want to make sure that the knowledge transferred to you is really the latest thinking. Often, there are several ways of accomplishing a task – in our engineering world, it could be about modeling a part or setting up an assembly with PTC Creo – but which is the best way that avoids running into downstream issues later? Is your technique really the fastest way of doing it or can the same result be accomplished more efficiently? I would want to trust that the person teaching me is really a subject-matter expert so that I can learn the best methods for doing my work.

 

Timing


Time is one of our most valuable assets. We often struggle to put sufficient mindshare into training. We would all like to advance our skills, but are so busy with our daily tasks that we tend to cut our development efforts short. Thus, the time it takes us to become efficient in using our software is a critical factor – we want to be fast to achieve maximum ROI on our training investment.

 

So when it comes to picking a teacher, we should put a lot of attention into his teaching skills to make sure we are not wasting time. Teaching skills depend on a variety of factors – the instructor’s communication skills, the ability to see things from others' perspective in order to teach exactly what they need to know, or the ability to ask the right questions to find out how much the student already knows. All this stems from experience, talent and subject-matter expertise.

 

Besides the actual skills of the teacher, a proven approach underpinning the course content and materials, will ensure the desired learning results are achieved with an efficient use of time. 

 

Transferability


Does the teacher bring knowledge and methods that are used in other countries of the world, too? Would I be able to transfer my knowledge to colleagues? Can I be sure to learn the same features that our engineering teams on other continents have been taught on? Especially in our globalized world, it is very important that our teacher is able to provide a consistent training program so that my personal knowledge will prove to be valuable for our teams or potential future employers abroad.

 

These are just a few points that came to my mind – I would love to hear about your thoughts, too!

One major enhancement in PTC Creo 3.0 has been the addition of chordal or constant width rounds. This new round option allows the creation of more aesthetically pleasing geometry by maintaining a constant width along the whole of the round length and eliminates the tedious process of having to construct round geometry using surfacing techniques. Users have the options of using circular, conic and C2 continuous rounds.

 

Paul Sagar, Director of Product Management, gives us an introductory overview of how you can use these new features:

 

In PTC Creo 3.0, we’ve added the chordal, or constant width round, option to give you an easy way to maintain constant widths for the entire length of the round.


In this example, we’ve applied  a round to the edge of the model. The transitions at the ends of the rounds blend toward a triangular patch. With chordal rounds functionality, this can be changed.

 

Inside the round user interface, click “Chordal.”

 

Then, when changing the value of the round you can see that the round maintains its constant width.

 

DYK_chordal rounds_image 1.png
Within the round user interface, click “Chordal” and you will see the round maintain a constant width.

 

In the next example, we will add another round to a transition which blends to a 3-sided patch or point.

 

Again, in the round user interface click “Chordal” results in a constant width round.

 

DYK_Chordal_Round_Image 2.png
An example of a constant width round formed from the transition of a 3 side point

 

From here, you could also select C2 continuous to change this round to curvature continuous. Changing the shape factor will alter the cross sectional shape of the round.


You can apply a reflection analysis onto the geometry by clicking “Analysis Reflection.” From here, you can see how cleanly the reflection lines transition across the patch structure.

 

DYK_Chordal_Round_Image 3.png
A look at the reflection lines across the patch structure using “Analysis Reflection”

 

 

You can also see clean reflections and highlights on the model by clicking “Shading with reflections.”

In Creo 1.0 this appears to be impossible to do due to crashing at very vulnerable positions during the proceedure.

 

You have a situation where you have a part that needs to be developed into a family table with sub instant parts that are related, but you may want to keep the original unharmed.

 

You are already using the part in assemblies and sub assemblies.

 

You rename the part to be the generic description, and add the part to the table, while having the drawing open. Save it before it crashes.

You save the drawing, but only to find dispite a message telling you it has saved, that it is still looking for the original part, next

 

You rename the ft generic description back to the original part to open the drawing. Replace the generic with the instance part, often crashes at this point,

save it again, the drawing is ok.

 

Next you open up an assemby with the original part, the whole thing fails because it cannot see the original part. You then rename the part so that the assembly can regenerate, next I have to rename it back and save it.

 

Next I have to replace the generic with the instant, hope it does not crash again.

 

I have tried by having the part, the drawing, and the assembly open all at once but things just do not update correctly before Creo suffers a fatal error.

 

Has anyone got any easier way to do this, and succeeded without Creo crashing at a point where it creates optimum damage?.

Jakarta, September 26, 2013 - PT XL Axiata Tbk. (XL) has agreed to acquire PT Axis Telekom Indonesia (AXIS), by entering into a conditional sale and purchase agreement (CSPA) with Saudi Telecom Company (STC) and Teleglobal Investments B.V. (Teleglobal), a subsidiary of STC. This action will drive industry consolidation, supporting a healthier telecommunications industry going forward and, more importantly, enable XL to provide improved network quality to customers.

This acquisition will provide significant benefits to customers and all stakeholders. Customers will experience enhanced service quality  across a broader, higher capacity and deeper network.

XL is paying as consideration a nominal equity value and only part of AXIS’ overall liabilities and indebtedness.

Key highlights of the CSPA are the following:

Teleglobal will sell (or procure the sale of) a 95% equity stake in AXIS to XL

AXIS is valued at 100% enterprise value of USD 865 million, on a cash  free and debt free basis.

The purchase consideration   will be utilized towards payment of a nominal value for AXIS equity and redemption of AXIS' indebtedness.

The completion of the transaction is subject to

All applicable regulatory approvals

XL shareholders’ approval at an Extraordinary General Meeting of Shareholders

Spectrum retention

The acquisition will address XL’s current challenges and provide additional resources for XL whilst also benefitting other stakeholders.

Key Rationale for XL’s acquisition of AXIS:

Over 65 million customers will immediately benefit from the superior quality of service and wider coverage

Consolidates the industry further and paves the way for more prudent, growth focused expansion with a more efficient capex profile

Supports the government’s national broadband objective

Addresses XL’s current challenges - Provides additional spectrum capacity to XL, subject to regulatory approvals, leading  to:

Significantly enhanced quality of service and network experience on   both 2G and 3G

Enhanced asset utilization, particularly on XL's towers and network equipment, with tangible reduction in capex and opex spends

Further reinforces XL’s leadership position, with sizeable business operations and scale

Larger subscriber base and on-net community

Stronger and more effective data focus and traction amongst the youth segment

Complementary businesses with multiple areas of revenue and cost  synergies

President Director  of  XL, Hasnul    Suhaimi,  said, “XL  is  committed to  our  customers who  will significantly benefit from this transaction. With the acquisition of AXIS (AXIS launched its services in April 2008 and is available in many major islands of Indonesia), XL will reinforce its leadership in the Indonesian telecommunications industry with strong traction in mobile data services. I believe all industry participants are in agreement that the industry must consolidate. This will be driven by companies like XL who have the  will and ability to accelerate the development of high quality communication services in Indonesia. Furthermore, XL is committed to investing in the next generation of mobile technologies and to bring   back the broader industry ecosystem to healthier economics. We will fully comply  with the prevailing regulations, and will consult and work with the regulators throughout the approval process.”

As Indonesia’s GDP continues to grow at an impressive 6% p.a., the role of telecommunications has shifted more strategically for many Indonesians. Today, telecommunications services are not only important in providing for connectivity, but also for increasing productivity, especially in mobile data services which experienced traffic growth of approximately 100 percent last year. The acquisition will enable XL to become a stronger data-focused operator well positioned to capture the large and fast growing, mobile data opportunity.

Both companies have integration plans and teams in place, which, post regulatory approvals, will enable XL to drive integration and synergies with XL’s strong execution track record and cost leadership DNA.

Merrill Lynch (Singapore) Pte. Ltd.  (Bank of America Merrill Lynch) is acting as exclusive financial advisor to XL in respect of this transaction.

About XL

PT XL Axiata Tbk. is one of the major cellular providers in Indonesia. PT XL Axiata Tbk. is 66.5% owned by Axiata Group Berhad through Axiata Investments (Indonesia) Sdn Bhd and public 33.5%, and is part of Axiata
