Wu and Clements-Croome (2005) investigate the optimization problem of PM policies for situations where the quality of PM is a random variable with a certain probability distribution. However, they assume that the cost of preventive maintenance is constant, not depending on the quality of PM. Thus, this paper considers a periodic PM model when PM cost depends on the quality of PM activity. The optimal PM policy are presented for the extended PM model and the numerical examples are presented for illustrative purpose.
