If you are using Oracle 9i or 10g, then the only PL/SQL package for optimizer statistics is the DBMS_STATS package. Read more information on this package here.

Do not use the old ANALYZE TABLE or ANALYZE INDEX to generate optimizer statistics anymore. The DBMS_STATS package does a much better job and it has more features.
