Page 3: Software Reengineering

Re-engineering is the examination, analysis and alteration of an existing software system to reconstitute it in a new form, and the subsequent implementation of the new form

Re-engineering encompasses a combination of other processes reverse engineering Re-documentation Re-structuring translation forward engineering


Page 5: Software Reengineering

Re-structuring or re-writing part or all of a legacy system without changing its functionality

Applicable where some but not all sub-systems of a larger system require frequent maintenance

Re-engineering involves adding effort to make them easier to maintain. The system may be re-structured and re-documented

Re-engineering Risks

Risk AreaApplication


Personnel Strategy


Page 16: Software Reengineering

Technology risks Recovered information is not useful or used Reverse engineering to representations that

cannot be shared Reengineering technology inadequate to

accomplish reengineering goals

Tool risks Dependence on tools that do not perform as

advertised Not using installed tools

Re-engineering Risks

Page 17: Software Reengineering

Strategy risks Premature commitment to a reengineering solution

for an entire system Failure to have a long-term vision with interim goals Lack of global view: code, data, process

reengineering No plan for using reengineering tools

Application risks Reengineering with no local application experts

available Existing business knowledge embedded in source

code is lost Reengineered system does not perform adequately

Re-engineering Risks

Page 18: Software Reengineering

Process risks Extremely high manual reengineering costs Cost benefits not realized in required time frame Cannot economically justify the reengineering effort Reengineering effort drifts Lack of management commitment to ongoing

reengineering solution

Personnel risks Programmers inhibiting the start of reengineering Programmers performing less effectively to make

an unpopular reengineering project look less effective

Re-engineering Risks

Software Re-engineering is reorganising and modifying existing software systems to make them more maintainable.

Its purpose is to improve the current system. occurs at two different levels of abstraction
