Abstract

Preventive maintenance (PM) is an effective approach for reliability enhancement. Time- based and condition-based maintenance are two major approaches for PM. In contrast, condition-based maintenance can be a better and more cost-effective type of maintenance than time-based maintenance. However. Irrespective of the approach adopted for PM, whether a failure can be detected early or even predicted is the key point. Towards this objective, this paper presents the study of failure and risk in customer access network, Fiber-to-the Home. Five significant elements had been chosen and identified that contribute to the system malfunction as the paper starting point. Critical hazard that gives effect to the human is also highlighted. Finally we proposed three techniques that can be used to minimize the hazard by excellent monitoring and reliably restoration scheme. This include also caution should be taken when handling, operating and implementing activities in the active fiber test field.
