Core components

ACS is built around the following core components that every person actively maintains.

Person with name, personal info, department and office.
  • Competences. Key qualifications as competence categories e.g. Methods, Technologies, Tools, and Roles. For each competence category specify included competences like RUP, Java, Hibernate and Scrum Master. This should not be a summary of the persons profile, this belongs to the CV and will be added later.
  • Workplaces. Current and previous employments.
  • Assignments/Experience. Work experiences, assignments, projects or roles that you have had, most likely as part of an employment.
  • Education. Formal education to be added here
  • Other. Somewhat more free what you want to add here. Publications, important roles, certifications etc are all good examples of information to add here.
  • If only start year and month are added to a workplace or assignment this means that it is ongoing. Wil be written in CV as e.g: '2010 Feb - ongoing'.
CV with role and profile.
  • ACS supports multiple CV profiles for any person. One CV is created per profile.
  • On the CV you may choose which of the entries under person that is relevant to include.
  • The role and profile texts creates the "first impression" one wants to give from this given profile.
Knowledge matrix (Beta) with a collection of skillsets questioned for a task/mission or bid.
  • Rating that consists of a knowledge description, scoring and references to experience elements that visualize that the scoring is correct in that specific area.

Note that a CV may exist in two languages, the native language it was written in (Currently supporting Norwegian and Swedish) and English.
The language of the Native template is decided by the language associated with the office where the person is working.
