You can record the special characteristics of an object in a profile. Each profile is made up of a number sub-profiles (for example, qualifications, potentials, and so on for persons) and a whole range of standard information about the object (for example, name, date of birth, and so on for persons).
You use profiles and sub-profiles to assign objects their own particular characteristics. For example, you can assign qualifications and potentials to a person, and requirements to a position.
You can evaluate and compare object sub-profiles with each other. This enables you to establish whether objects are suitable (for example, persons for positions) or whether qualification deficits exist. You can display and print out each sub-profile and the overall list of all sub-profiles in graphic form.
The following sub-profiles are defined in the standard system:
Requirements can be passed on, or inherited, to other objects. For further information, see Requirements.
In these individual sub-profile topics, you will find out which sub-profiles you can create for which object types.
You use a profile view to define the elements that make up a profile. For further information about defining profile views, refer to the Implementation Guide (IMG) for Personnel Development (step: Functions ® Define profile view).
