Niche Experts and Decisive Classification Will Boost the U.S. and World Economies

Utilization of newly retired individuals as niche experts in combination with a decisive classification system will boost the world’s economy and effectively utilize the otherwise unemployed. This is the conclusion of the McIlvaine Company based upon several years of experience with the program.

In an increasingly complex world, knowledge resides in more and smaller niches. The world’s progress will be accelerated to the extent that:

a.         Individuals with specific expertise are identified

b.         This expertise is made available to those who need it

c.         These individuals become more focused and can make an ever greater contribution

Decision making is a series of classifications. A decisive classification system provides the list of choices at each step in the series. Niche experts are identified to help make the right choice at each of these classification steps. The result is much better decision making and effective utilization of the world’s knowledge.

For the first time in history a significant portion of the unemployed are knowledgeable workers. Due to longer life spans there are large numbers of potentially productive retirees. These individuals can contribute to the development of the decisive classification systems relative to their knowledge niche and can be remunerated for the advice that they can offer.

The system is already being employed for environmental decisions. An example involves reducing nitrogen oxides (NOx) emissions from the coal-fired boilers. The Chinese are implementing a very ambitious program and need to build on the expertise in the U.S. and Europe. Among the many steps is one to determine how to maintain the catalyst which is integral to the reduction process. There was no decisive classification. So McIlvaine assembled the catalyst manufacturers and experts and joint agreement was obtained that there are only three viable options. The definitions and translations to Chinese were then undertaken.

Other Children of:











Chinese    Descriptor




 Catalyst Maintenance

 Cleaning Catalyst




 A dry process that utilizes   vacuum and compressed air to mechanically remove as much of the fly ash   accumulation as possible.

 Catalyst Maintenance

 Regeneration Catalyst




 “Catalyst cleaning” followed   by a wet chemical process to remove decay compounds plus re-impregnation of   the catalytic compound(s).

 Catalyst Maintenance

 Rejuvenation Catalyst




 “Catalyst cleaning” followed   by a wet chemical process to remove some decay compounds with minimum removal   of catalytic compound(s). There is no re-impregnation of the catalytic   compound(s).

Anyone seeking guidance about cleaning catalyst can quickly find this classification and experts who can advise on each of the options. These appear in the McIlvaine Global Decisions Orchard (GDO).

The experts who have been working in this area include individuals from 25-80 years of age. They include experts on the Chinese problems and experts on the international solutions. So far the most valuable contribution has been by semi-retired individuals working as niche experts.
