Software re-engineering, a recent research area includes reverse engineering & forward engineering whileHybrid re-engineering incorporates both the engineering processes where reverse engineering applies toexisting system code to extract design & requirements, although this is often used as means to mitigaterisks & reduced costs of operation and maintaining the software system. This paper briefly describestraditional re-engineering then discusses the emerging process of hybrid-reengineering which is often usedas means to simplify the cumbersome tasks. The paper represents how maintenance is going to be effectwith the help of given software engineering approaches. An analysis of various possible risks, their impactand mapping with various attributes is correspondingly depicted. This paper is also presenting the way toreduce the impact of most of these risks by using hybrid re-engineering.
