Abstract

Many scholars claimed that due to maintenance, high reconstruction and construction costs in Malaysia, LCC shows an important role in estimating the cost of rigid pavement. Because of the government's expenditure and high budget allocation on pavement rehabilitation and maintenance work in Malaysia, choosing the most cost-effective pavement maintenance, maximizing the budget allocation and rehabilitation alternatives is essential for transportation agencies. A useful technique LCC of economic analysis that measures the different solutions of cost-effectiveness to rehabilitation and maintenance within the same category of roads. To generate a broad and accurate LCC output, however, it is necessary to ensure that the value information inputs are ready and of sufficient quality to use in the estimationof the LCC. This article shows the findings of Malaysia's systematic literature review inputs for LCC cost information study of dynamic pavement rehabilitation and maintenance. The literature study results showed that the greater part of key players in the construction industry are aware of the need for LCC analysis in the rigid rehabilitation and maintenance of the pavement. In Malaysia the LCC current state system of rigid pavement rehabilitation and maintenance, however, is still in its not only infancystage but also is not ready for the difficulties to be implemented in achieving quality cost data to generate a reliable and comprehensive analysis of life cycle cost. The present findings of the paper which provide information on cost data current state inputs in the construction industry from the LCC analysis of rigid pavement rehabilitation and maintenance.
