Software development is difficult because software is complex, the software production process is complex and understanding of software systems is a challenge. In this paper we propose a 3D visual approach to depict software production cost related program information to support software maintenance. The information helps us to reduce software maintenance costs, to plan the use of personnel wisely, to appoint experts efficiently and to detect system problems early.
