The topic of material maintenance management of infrastructure system has attracted increasing interest in the last decade. The study objectives are to simulate the maintenance efficiency of alternative materials and component assessment processes and alternative sources of facilities maintenance budgeting. The research focuses on the maintenance of construction material as an economic analysis for the existing operating infrastructure systems services. The research uses a systematic assessment field as followed by the USACERL condition index method. The paper presents an economic analysis using the existing data. Data is collected through financial and technical sheet. Data is analyzed using the economic tools and economic analysis is simulated with MATLAB software. Cast iron pipe within wastewater plumbing system is chosen as a material to be used in the simulation. The purpose of this paper is to develop an economic analysis simulation for material maintenance assessment during its service life based on highest interest economic rate. This method helps to facilities managers and engineers to make better decisions for reducing maintenance costs and increasing the material's service life.
