A Fuzzy Inference System Approach to Resource Capability Assessment
The capability of a resource is an important aspect to consider in resource management and production planning. This paper extends on the system introduced in our previous work [3, 4] and outlines a resource capability assessment function to determine how well a worker’s current capability matches up to that required by his or her job-role. The proposed function can also be used for the purpose of personnel selection in employment and promotion decisions. A fuzzy inference system approach is proposed for the development of the capability assessment function and a case study is carried out in industry to demonstrate the successful implementation and performance of the assessment method.
