In our research, we focus on the early estimation of direct costs during new product development. In particular we explore the integration of cost estimation models in the management process, considering the problem of data quality and model acceptance. In general, we want to determine possible applications of Big Data and Machine Learning in Management Accounting. The case study research is conducted in cooperation with AUDI AG.
