About the course

3-day (24 hours) classroom course

IATA Aeronautical Information Management (AIM) aviation training course

This 3-day course is designed for airlines and their business partners. It provides a review of the Airline Industry Data Model (AIDM) rationale, concepts, structure and methodology. The AIDM enables the generation of interoperable and easy to use messaging standards, with consistent definitions and format of data exchanges and faster time to market for new or changed data exchange standards. AIDM is an integrated living model, developed with SPARX Systems Enterprise Architect (EA), a powerful visual modeling platform. In AIDM, all information is stored in one repository. Users of the model can view, extend and adapt definitions contained in the model. You will learn how to navigate the AIDM and find parts of the model you can leverage for designing and implementing your companies’ IT systems or data exchange components, as well as how to influence and tune AIDM repository contents and messaging standards generated.
