A method of monitoring the operation of a partition movement system having a partition. In an embodiment, the method includes monitoring a parameter having a relation to movement of the partition, generating a first value based on the monitored parameter, and generating a difference value between the first value and a threshold value. The threshold value is indicative of a potential pinch condition. The method also includes determining a position value of the partition corresponding to a relative position of the partition when the difference value is generated, and using at least one of the difference value and the position value to determine a state of the partition movement system.

An application with the status "Published" (which means it is pending) may be recently abandoned, but not yet updated to reflect its abandoned status. However, an application filed less than one year ago is unlikely to be abandoned.
A patent with the status "Granted" may be recently expired, but not yet updated to reflect its expired status. However, it is highly unlikely a patent less than 3.5 years old would be expired.
An application with the status "Abandoned" is almost always current, but there is a small chance it was recently revived and the status not yet updated.
