Check if the skill is already present in ISOT. If not, go to the next step.
Check if the skill is a synonym of an existing skill in ISOT. If yes, include that as a synonym of that skill. If not, go to the next step.
Analyse the skill to determine to which high level category the term belongs (e.g. banking or electronics engineering), and which category of skill it belongs to (whether a tool or concepts etc.). Then, go to step 4.
Check if the skill belongs to an existing master (group of skill). If yes, go to Step 5. If not, go to step 7.
Add the skill to the existing master. For example, the new skill may be a new accounting standard. If so, it will be included in the master called accounting standards. Then go to step 6.
After adding to the master, check to which all nodes in the association the skill needs to be activated. For instance, accounting standard (a master group) may be associated with five different nodes in the association table whereas the newly added accounting standard may only need to be activated for two of these five associations.
If the skill does not belong to any existing master (group of skills), create a new master (following the master nomenclature). Then go to the next step.
Add the master i.e. associate the group of skills to the respective node(s) in the association tree.
Assign properties to the newly added nodes in the association tree.
