Overview

The OSCAM family of models consists of several separate models, some of which are specific to either US or UK operations. In addition, each model has a complimentary data management tool capable of creating OSCAM compatible datasets from component level work breakdown structures.

The OSCAM models that are currently supported by the US Navy are OSCAM Ship, OSCAM Sys and OSCAM Air.  Each of these models has a companion Data Management Tool that allows maintenance data to be represented as sub-system level.  In addition, OSCAM Ship has a Parametric Costing Tool that makes use of Cost Estimating Relationships developed from VAMOSC to generate an OSCAM dataset based on ship characteristics.

Other OSCAM models have been created for other services, countries, and for specific equipment programs.

A brief description of the OSCAM models is shown below.  Click on the hyperlinks for more information.

OSCAM Ship

Designed to estimate Operating and Support costs for naval platforms, the OSCAM Ship model is supported by a comprehensive set of data for current and out-of-service ship classes.  OSCAM Ship also has a companion Data Management Tool and Parametric Costing Tool.  More...

OSCAM Air

Designed to estimate Operating and Support costs for Naval Aircraft, the OSCAM Air model has been developed for Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR).  It is supported with datasets for fixed wing and rotary wing aircraft.  OSCAM Air has a companion Data Management Tool, and a Data Input/Output Tool that allows OSCAM Air datasets to be prepared using Microsoft Excel.  More...

OSCAM Sys

OSCAM Sys is designed for estimating Operating and Support costs for shipboard systems.  It is supported by a range of VAMOSC based datasets that are provided for all systems reported in the VAMOSC Shipboard Systems Universe after 2000,  More... 

OSCAM JSF

OSCAM JSF is a version of OSCAM that was specifically designed for the Joint Strike Fighter (F-35) program. It shares a common heritage with OSCAM Air.  The OSCAM JSF model is an Operating and Support (O&S) costing tool, available to JSF partner countries to assist them in developing CAPE based O&S cost estimates. The tool is a way of sharing data with partners and a way for partners to understand life cycle O&S cost analysis. More details can be found on the OSCAM JSF website.

OSCAM EFV

Developed for the US Marine Corps for their Advanced Amphibious Assault Vehicle, the EFV model is a bespoke model, tailored specifically for the EFV Program Office. More...

OSCAM USAF

OSCAM USAF was designed for the USAF C-17 Program Office, although it was designed to be generic enough to be used for a range of USAF aircraft. It shares a common ancestry with OSCAM Air, and has been largely superseded by that model.  More...

OSCAM Land

OSCAM Land has been developed for the UK Ministry of Defence and has been used on a number of UK Land programs. More...

Data Management Tool (DMT)

All OSCAM models have a companion Data Management Tool (DMT).  It allows the platform or shipboard system to be represented as a work breakdown system of sub-systems and components.  Maintenance data can be entered for components at the lowest level of breakdown in the WBS and used to generate an OSCAM compliant dataset. More...

Parametric Costing Tool (PCT)

The OSCAM Ship model has a companion Parametric Costing Tool.  It allows between 4 and 12 ship characteristics to be entered and generates an OSCAM compliant dataset based on Cost Estimating Relations that have been generated from VAMOSC data.  The PCT is supported by VAMOSC views that provide insight into the historical data that was used to generate the cost relationships.  The PCT is provided as part of the OSCAM Ship suite.
