In personnel planning, two perspectives are decisive for determining the personnel assignment according to the company objectives: On the one hand, which competences of employees are available in the workforce and on the other hand, which competences are necessary for the production system. With this comparison, it is feasible to identify which further training potentials are available and how the production system can be improved. However, both perspectives are dominated by inaccuracies, so that industrial companies cannot see the potential for optimisation at this point. To overcome these inaccuracies, a new method is introduced in this paper. It is based on a simulation of production systems that considers employees and their competences. This enables employees to be rated as an element of the system and, thus, the impact of a competence change can be assessed systematically. For that purpose, competences are determined that influence performance as well as corresponding properties of the production system which lead to certain requirements on the competences of the employees. The mentioned inaccuracies are eliminated and even precise assessments for competence modifications, such as cost-effectiveness analyses, become possible.
