Competence management has received much attention during recent years because it contributes to achieving organizational goals and solving problems such as improvement of information or competence supply. Many approaches were proposed to modelling competence and using competence models but there is still a lack of research into structures and utilisation of competence proles in a competence management system. This article addresses this problem by proposing a formal approach to competence prole management. Four project cases are first analysed to elicit requirements of competence prole management, including competence prole operations. After that, an abstract model of competence prole management is formally denedbased on the requirements. Finally, an ontology-based implementation of the abstract model is presented including a software architecture of a competence prole management system. The main contribution of this work is formalization of operations on competence proles and ontology-based implementation of these operations. The proposed implementation architecture can facilitate construction of a competence prole management system.
