Feedback from recent OSCAM Training Courses

"I feel OSCAM is the only tool that will really help me estimate O&S costs."

"It was the most professional and informative cost related course I have attended."

"Good pacing, it was nice  to have a mixture of presentations and exercises."

"Very thorough overview of the entire model. Trainers were excellent and know the material very well."

"I thought the teachers were excellent - very helpful and knowledgeable. I also thought the case studies and splinter sessions provided excellent real world examples."

"Excellent course, excellent instructors. This new knowledge will be most beneficial in future estimating."

"Thank you for a wonderful course!"

"Thank you! Awesome class."

 


The Operating and Support Cost Analysis Model (OSCAM) began as a joint program, in 1996, between the US/UK aimed at developing a model that estimated the O&S 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. To learn more about each specific OSCAM model type, please visit the Products section of the website.
