With increased global economic development, the air traffic volume (including passengers and
parcels) increases every year. Thus, the business-related load on air traffic controllers becomes
heavier, which influences their need for frequent learning and training opportunities. Therefore,
the only solution is to enhance the performance of the training for the air traffic controllers (ATCs)
and to build uniform training procedures and standardized training content, which constitute a
shared framework with ontology knowledge. Taking departure operation control processes as an
example, the research analyzes an aviation organization framework, with information communication
procedures and relevant knowledge assets from the viewpoint of departure processes, to
explore a knowledge management model of aviation control. This research studies how explicit
knowledge is transformed by CommonKADS methodology using the CommonKADS sheet, and the
Unified Modeling Language (UML) graph presentation and ontology model are discussed in this
research. This analysis procedure can be applied to the systematic analysis and establishment of
similar business-based information systems, allowing this research result to be further shared in
