Introduction

This series of automated tutorials has been designed to complement the OSCAM Ship training courses. The tutorials walk through examples of using OSCAM Ship and aim to provide a taste of the functionality to those who have not yet attended the training course, as well as a "how to..." reminder for those that have.

The links provided below use the Flash player plugin for your web browser to play a "movie" of the selected tutorial. Alternatively you can download and run an executable version of the movie. Progress through the tutorials may be controlled using the drop-down buttons which can be found at the top right of the viewing screen.

Note that the tutorials below show OSCAM Ship v8.0. OSCAM Ship undergoes incremental enhancements and many aspects of the visual style and functionality have been improved. In particular the Load and Save wizards, Throughput sector, results screen and the Uncertainty Tool have had significant functionality improvements. The tutorials do still demonstrate the basic functionality of OSCAM Ship and are a useful introduction on how it works.

All scenarios and data are fictitious and are for demonstration purposes only. Each tutorial runs for approximately 15 minutes.
