Turn Your Model-Based Enterprise Talk Into Action with OSCAR.
As a leader in Model-Based Enterprise (MBE), you already know that Model-Based Definition (MBD) is the key to meeting your company’s time and quality goals and staying competitive in the market, but it’s not that simple. You have an entire organization to educate, train, refresh, and onboard. Enter OSCAR…
Short for Ontology System for CAD Reuse (just OSCAR to friends) the name refers to the many facets of MBD adoption and their interconnectedness.
OSCAR is the top resource for cutting-edge training and a toolkit of materials tailored to your CAD system created and implemented by the team of experts at Action Engineering. AND OSCAR is the most cost-effective solution for your company’s 3D transformation goals.
OSCAR Streamlines Training
Conventional CAD training is inadequate, and skills degrade quickly when they’re not backed up by real-world practice. OSCAR solves this problem by providing engaging MBD training backed up by expert MBD GD&T examples in native and neutral CAD. Users learn the what, why, and how of MBD; and they have the CAD templates to put that training to practical use.
