Bus schedule in great disorder

I missed bus 163 by less than a minute when I arrived at Upper Thomson Road.  The app shows the next bus arriving after 14 minutes. This was strange, as the interval during peak hours is about 8 minutes.

The next bus arrived after 30 minutes. During this interval, about four buses under other services passed the stop - service 52, 410, 165, 980. Where is bus 163?

The bus schedule and punctuality must be in disorder. Why is this the case? We have technology to monitor the punctuality of the buses and the occupancy rate. If the buses are full, the Land Transport Authority should ask for more buses to be added. But, they do not seem to know. They probably did not analyze the data.
