Processo de Redocumentação: Uma Necessidade

Nicolas AnquetilKáthia Marçal de Oliveira

Most software engineers know and understand the importance of software documentation. Unfortunately, in many cases, time and budget constraints prevent them ro perform the fundamental activity of documentation. A few maintenance operations later, the need for better documentation arises as an essential factor. To keep active old software systems with inexisting or bad documentation, companies need to spend more resources in software maintenance. It is essential,therefore, to re-document those software systems to be possible a better actual and future maintenance. Tthis paper presents a software process redocumentation designed taking into accoount two aspects: the scarcity of resources to perform such a task and the use of reverse engineering approach, that is, from source code to more abstract documentation. This paper also presents lessons learned from the use of software process in some companies.
