Software industry has developed during the past few years and the development has focused mainly on a growing market and the development of component based software systems. Different designs have emerged and the technical knowledge makes it possible to put component based software off shore. The fast expansion of the software market has also come with some problems. The new designs are not always fully tested, and the designed lifetime of software is typically never achieved until the next generation of software is developed. The extreme conditions and the high loads that software is exposed to makes the coordination for maintenance an interesting issue.
