Offering the best, most productive way to maintain computer software, this book covers the three distinct types of maintenance: corrective (fixing defects), adaptive, (enhancements), and perfective (improving software quality). Perfective maintenance, which has received little mention elsewhere, offers a chance to identify high-cost software for restructuring or rewriting; included here are step-by-step procedures to identify and restructure these problem programs. The book is organized in the order that maintenance activities normally occur in a scheduled release. Contains many examples, bullet lists, and information mapping to highlight key points.A detailed example will be shown in Chapter 8. ... An intensive inspection and correction of potential defects in these modules is perfective maintenance. It improves the systema#39;s reliability and reduces the cost of corrective maintenance.
