Maintenance is one of the important methods that can be used to ensure the machines and equipment can operate within the best condition. A good scheduling for maintenance will maintain the proper performance since all resources will be utilised effectively as the underused of the resource can be reduced. The schedule created ensures the particular task was done within the time provided. What, when, where and how the certain operation will be done will be stated to make sure the planned activity going smoothly without any delays. However, the uncertainty that happened during the maintenance needs to be taken into account to create the fully optimised schedule. This change will affect the schedule developed and caused delays to the scheduled task. Once the beginning task is delayed, the following work will also be postponed. Thus, a mathematical model for maintenance scheduling for repairable and inspection of the machines and equipment was proposed to deal with the uncertainty that happened. This dynamic model will create the new schedule for the maintenance scheduling and help the manager in the decision-making process on where to assign the maintenance team when the uncertainty happened.
