Data Science and “big data” or the analysis of large quantities of consolidated and searchable information are having great impacts on operations, industries, scientific fields, and analytical disciplines, including cost estimating. This paper will provide a basic understanding of data science, discuss some current issues and solutions for cost estimators using data science, and suggest some steps ICEAA can take to incorporate data science with current cost estimating training and certifications to capture and shape the benefits of the data science revolution in cost analysis.
