  Quaternary sector of industry - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The quaternary sector of industry is the sector of industry that involves the intellectual services.
It was once considered just a subset of the general service-oriented tertiary sector of industry.
This includes the high tech industry, with information technology and some forms of scientific research, as well as education and consulting, and information industry.

 America's Industry Authority
An industry is generally any grouping of businesses that share a common method of generating profits, such as the "movie industry", the "automobile industry", or the "cattle industry".
Industry in the second sense became a key sector of production in European and North American countries during the Industrial Revolution, which upset previous mercantile and feudal economies through many successive rapid advances in technology, such as the development of steam engines, power looms, and advances in large scale steel and coal production.
Following the Industrial Revolution, perhaps a third of world's economic output is derived from manufacturing industries—more than agriculture's share, but now less than that of the service sector.

 Primary sector of industry - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The primary sector of industry generally involves the conversion of natural resources into primary products.
Most products from this sector are considered raw materials for other industries.
Downstream manufacturing industries that aggregate, pack, package, purify or process the raw materials close to the primary producers are normally considered part of this sector, especially if the raw material is unsuitable for sale or difficult to transport long distances.

 History of Denmark
Today, Denmark's balanced economy, in which much of its agricultural and industrial output is exported, gives the country one of the highest standards of living in the world.
Industrial development, hitherto slowed in Denmark owing to the lack of raw materials for heavy industry, was aided by the growing demand for equipment in the food-processing industries, and by the end of the 19th century, numerous industrial items were being produced.
Most raw materials for other industries are imported and converted in Denmark to consumer and export items, their high value being derived from the technical and artistic skills of the labor force.

 Library Services for Social Development: - 60th IFLA General Conference
The information industry in advanced countries is the sector that employs the most people, while the computer industry is providing the technological support necessary to the expansion and consolidation of the information industry.
Notably, during the administration of President Collor, this was seen in the weakening of the public sector and especially with regard to the closing of libraries and the breaking up of important bibliographical holdings, with no concern for the consequent significant loss resulting from these barbarous act s.
It is necessary to frankly question the validity of the management models used and their orientation in a search for innovation, by developing management capabilitie s to handle the complexity and reconstruction of information systems that are capable of developing and transforming human talents to contribute to the collective well-being of society.

 Chapter Five
Quaternary industry includes services needed by producers such as trade, insurance, legal services, banking, advertising, wholesaling, retailing, consulting, information generation and real estate transactions.
Such activities represent one of the major growth sectors in post-industrial economies and a geographical segregation seems to be developing in which manufacturing is increasingly shunted to the peripheries while corporate headquarters, markets and the producer-related service activities remain in the core.
Increasingly important in the quaternary sector is the collection, generation, storage, retrieval and processing of computerized knowledge and information including research, consulting, publishing and forecasting.

 Tertiary sector of industry -   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-03)
The service sector or the service industry, is one of the three main industrial categories of a developed economy, the others being the secondary industry (manufacturing and primary goods production such as agriculture), and primary industry (extraction such as mining and fishing).
Services may involve the transport, distribution and sale of goods from producer to a consumer as may happen in wholesaling and retailing, or may involve the provision of a service, such as in pest control or entertainment.
Manufacturing tends to be more open to international trade and competition than services.

 The Rise of the Archaeological Consulting Industry in Ontario
Co-operation between academic archaeologists and the consultant industry, for example, is greatly needed, both in terms of ensuring findings from the consultant's work are available for detailed research, and in terms of educating and training the next generation of Ontario archaeologists about the activity most of them will be involved in.
Co-operation, in the form of open communication between all sectors, is also desperately needed, since the level of isolation, particularly between consultant archaeologists and the rest of the community, has tended to breed distrust and mis-information about the achievements of the community as a whole.
Improvements by consultant archaeologists towards professionalising their industry, as well as improvements by the entire archaeological community in the areas of co-operation, communication and co-management, are necessary in order to respond to the changing face of archaeology in Ontario.

Although industry leaders are working to bring young, qualified engineers and scientists into their companies, students are often wary of the peaks and valleys in aerospace careers.
Industry leaders must be proactive in sponsoring high school and college courses, offering education incentives, such as scholarships and internships, visiting schools as role models, and providing jobs.
Active involvement from industry will provide some of the incentives that are badly needed to persuade students that there are, indeed, fine career opportunities for those who have math, science, and engineering as their core skill set.

Any of the different groups into which industries may be divided: primary, secondary, tertiary, and quaternary.
Secondary industries are manufacturing industries, where raw materials are processed or components are assembled.
The quaternary sector of industry is concerned with the professions and those services that require a high level of skill, expertise, and specialization.

The service sector involves many occupations that do not require a high level of education or training (which are referred to as “low-skill” jobs), such as fast-food workers, janitors, cashiers, and bus drivers.
QUATERNARY ACTIVITIES: The distinction between tertiary and quaternary activities is somewhat fuzzy.
Technically, quaternary activities can be considered a subset of the tertiary sector in that they are services that people do for other people using equipment (e.g., computers, telephones, slide projectors, etc.) manufactured by the secondary sector.

Way back when the industry was moving to two-to-four-micron geometries, most of the mainstream semiconductor companies started investigating ternary and quaternary logic circuitry because they felt that the shift in manufacturing equipment required to move to smaller geometries would be too expensive.
At about the same time, the industry was looking for higher speed alternatives to silicon transistors to boost clock rates.
But the designs were problematic because the state of the industry at the time was good only at discriminating two logic levels and it would have required a lot of work to discriminate three or four.
