Human Resource Allocation in Process Simulations Based on Competency Vectors
This paper specifies a method to describe human resources’ skills and competencies for the use in automatic simulations of operative business processes to enhance the precision of such simulations. A way to convert this description into the vector space model is also provided and used to find and evaluate adequate resources for performing process activities based on their competency requirements. Two different competency vector representations are introduced and experimentally compared on the software process of a local software development company using the F-measure.
