What Is OSCAM?

The Operating and Support Cost Analysis Model (OSCAM) began as a joint program in 1996 between the US and UK aimed at developing a model that estimated the operating and support costs of Ships and Shipboard Systems and captured the interdependencies that exist between the cost elements across the program. Using System Dynamics, OSCAM represents the business processes that drive costs and their relationships to management policies in order to assess the impact of technical, operational, and programmatic decisions on the cost and availability of these assets. Since the inception of OSCAM, there have been subsequent product developments that not only enhanced the Ship and Shipboard Systems model, but established new product lines encompassing both Land and Air Vehicles.

NCCA OSCAM and OSCAM Downloads

A mirror of this website is now being hosted by the Naval Center for Cost Analysis. One difference is that all OSCAM model and dataset downloads are only available via the NCCA OSCAM website and you must have a US government CAC card to do this. Instructions for registered OSCAM users without CAC cards are included on the NCCA OSCAM downloads pages.

April 2018

The OSCAM Ship v8.4 FY19 update is available for download. This contains an inflation table updates from the FY19 Joint Inflation Calculator issued by NCCA.

OSCAM Sys v7.0 FY19 updates are available for download.

OSCAM Air v4.2 is available for download. The update includes a combined Simulation/DMT/PCT application, optimized simulation run times, display of individual Throughput items in the results table, an expansion of the Uncertainty Tool to allow: selection of annual profile tables and Throughputs, the ability to define correlation between uncertainty inputs, the ability to view and export uncertainty input sample data and expanded options for exporting uncertainty results. An OSCAM Air Import/Export Tool allows importing, editing and export of OSCAM data using a Microsoft Excel workbook. See the overview of OSCAM Air v4.2 features for more details.

December 2017

OSCAM Ship v8.4 is available for download. The update includes a combined Simulation/DMT/PCT application, the ability to enter year and month for ship introductions, and an expansion of the Uncertainty Tool to allow: selection of annual profile tables and Throughputs, the ability to define correlation between uncertainty inputs, the ability to view and export uncertainty input sample data and expanded options for exporting uncertainty results. Optimization of the simulation model calculations menas that most uncertainty analysis can be completed much quicker than in earlier OSCAM models. OSCAM Ship v8.4 also includes an update of the PCT CER database to include FY16 historical data. An OSCAM Ship Import/Export Tool allows importing, editing and export of OSCAM data using a Microsoft Excel workbook. See the overview of OSCAM Ship v8.4 features for more details.

June 2017

OSCAM Air v4.1 is available for download. This features a user interface refresh, CAPE 2014 O&S cost output structure, complete re-design for the Load and Save Wizards, and a Legacy Aircraft Mode to support costing to end of life for aircraft programs that are already in service. See the overview of new features in OSCAM Air v4.1.

March 2017
