Summary Sand Chart

The Summary Sand Chart provides a annual stacked bar chart with colored bars showing the CAPE elements. There are configuration options to include non-O&S costs and to expand out the maintenance elements. The chart also has options to add a second axis and line graphs to show aircraft in the program, aircraft in squadrons or aircraft flying hours.

The option settings will be retained during the session so that the next Summary Sand Chart to be displayed will use the same options as the current one. Use the Set As Default Configuration to record the settings and make them the default for the next time that OSCAM is used.

Pie Chart

The Pie Chart shows a breakdown of 1st level CAPE O&S cost elements. There is an option to also include Disposal costs in the pie chart. There is an option to display the percentage or $M value in the marker for each pie slice. The pie chart can be rotated by a selected number of degrees using the up and down arrows next to the Chart Rotation item. This can be used to deal with issues of overlapping labels or just allow a preference for the starting pie slice. It is also possible to drag-and-drop pie slice labels if they overlap.
