Human resources are one of the most important assets of an organization. The setup of a proper Human Resource Management system undoubtedly represents one of the pillars upon which any organization should be built. Many effective standards and solutions have been proposed in the past decades. However, the ever changing environment and the emerging technologies, such as ontologies and linked data, lead to adapt them and consider new approaches. The solution proposed in this document aims to combine existing standards for manufacturing information and ontology modelling. As a result, the development of an ontology model enhancing the HR information flow with semantics, on the one hand, enables the use of common data formats and exchange protocols promoted by the world Wide Web Consortium (W3C) and exploitable on the Sematic Web. On the other hand, it lays the foundations for an automated decision making process based on inference rules and smart data management. A study has been performed in a real-life industry revealing highly notable results.
