After analyzing these bodies of knowledge with CommonKADS, the result was the Knowledge Modeling diving knowledge into 3 levels of utilization called Task Knowledge, Inference Knowledge and Domain Knowledge. The necessary bodies of knowledge for researchers can be used in designing knowledge management system to be the center of education, knowledge creation, tknowledge forum, knowledge storing, knowledge sharing and knowledge distribution for both Tacit Knowledge and Explicit Knowledge. In addition, this knowledge can be further developed to support the knowledge management and the organization's operation in the future.
