ABSTRACT
Reengineering and rewriting are two common approaches for improving system quality—in addition to refactoring, which the last installment of this column explored. Reengineering is a systematic approach to evolve existing software to exhibit new behavior, features, and operational quality. Refactoring and reengineering aren't the same, and they're also different from rewriting—the most radical change—which involves wiping the slate clean and starting over.
INDEX TERMS
refactoring, reengineering, rewriting, functional quality, developmental quality, operational quality, software, software engineering
