Packages and commands for cost-based optimization

What PL/SQL packages and commands are better for cost-based optimization?

What PL/SQL packages and what commands are better for a DBA to use for cost-based optimization?
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.
