The European Union-funded PROLIX project is developing software tools designed to analyze business processes and their associated competencies to identify skills gaps in the workplace. PROLIX has devised a methodology to ensure that what training organizations offer to workers are aligned with business requirements. Business process analysis is performed with software modeling tools augmented with competency data related to the specific business processes supplied by process managers and human resources managers. The PROLIX tools then execute a skills gap analysis so workers can be provided the training courses they need to do their job correctly. “Once we have identified what is needed to make businesses faster or more cost-effective, we can then target training and provide a measured learning outcome,” says project coordinator Volker Zimmermann. PROLIX brings together a consortium of academic institutions, testbed partners, and software development partners. Most of the participants plan to continue the partnership following PROLIX’s conclusion to commercialize the system or embed parts of it into their existing products.
