Panel Discussion – Emerging Technologies

“Data, Data Standards, and Analytics to Improve Cost Estimation – Role of ICMS”

This panel will highlight how organizations can enhance the overall estimation process and its accuracy by using historical cost data and analytics. The panel will discuss the role of standards such as the International Construction Measurement Standards (ICMS) in the enhancement process. The panel discussion will debate issues related to harnessing the power of cost data that sits idly in an organization’s estimating systems, cost management systems, and procurement systems. Analytics tools, including artificial intelligence tools, can inform early-stage cost advice for new projects, provide accurate and precise cost estimates, help in monitoring and controlling project costs, and at times, assist in forensic cost analysis. Market conditions and economic factors such as commodity prices can also be brought into the mix to allow estimators to consider an outside view. This, in turn, can help cost professionals conduct important analysis such as value-formoney, life cycle costing, and performance benchmarking.
