Its objective is to ensure that systems remain operational. It is an expensive process and the design and implementation process of any system should try to minimise the need for corrective maintenance. Perfective Maintenance carried out in order to perfect the software or to improve software so that the processing inefficiencies will be eliminated and performance enhanced. It often consists of making enhancements requested by users to improve or extend the facilities available as well as improve efficiency or effectiveness. Adaptive Maintenance - required to take account of anticipated changes in the processing environment, e.g. user information needs may change, organisational structure may be altered or legislative changes may impose new obligations on the software. Preventative Maintenance carried out in advance of a problem occurring in order to reduce the risk of that problem. In theory, more preventive maintenance means less corrective maintenance.
