Software re-engineering, a recent research area includes reverse engineering & forward engineering while hybrid re-engineering incorporates both the engineering processes where reverse engineering applies to existing system code to extract design & requirements, although this is often used as means to mitigate risks & reduced costs of operation and maintaining the software system. This paper briefly describes traditional re-engineering then discusses the emerging process of hybrid re-engineering which is often used as means to simplify the cumbersome tasks.
