Abstract

Cost estimation is a technique wherein the cost related to a product or a project is predicted well in advance to make planning easy and simple. For composite components, stakeholders’ requirements and technical requirements are complex. Large number of cost drivers with very little knowledge of composite technology makes cost estimation a difficult task. Uncertainty in information is another problem in cost estimation. Proper KM and automation are necessary for making cost estimation models simple and flexible. KBE is a cyclic process where knowledge is captured, assimilated, refined, coded, automated and reused in a desired format to save time. This paper presents a review of the current knowledge about composite materials, their cost estimation techniques and use of KBE in cost modeling. This paper also shows the drawbacks of the current system which can be overcome by applying the benefits of KBE.
