Software re-engineering, a recent research area includes reverse engineering, forward engineering and reengineering tools while re-engineering process modification to get new enhanced process until now does not discussed in a serious manner, so in this paper the traditional software reengineering process is discussed and the "proposed software reengineering process" is suggested. The proposed process incorporates both the reverse engineering process and forward engineering process integrated with spiral model 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 proposed-reengineering which is often used as means to simplify the complex tasks. The paper represents how quality is going to be effect with the help of given software reengineering process. An analysis of various possible risks, their impact and mapping with various attributes is correspondingly presented. This paper is also presenting the way to reduce the impact of most of these risks by using proposed re-engineering through get all the useful features of spiral model.
