Dekleva's (1992) study confirms that if you build a system well, it will be maintained more than if you don't. Why! Because maintenance is about product enhancement and a well-built system is easier to enhance. So, if you still believe we can eliminate maintenance by doing our development jobs better, the author has a different view. That's not how it works. When it comes to software maintenance, it's increasingly clear that we should be doing more of it, not less. Maintenance is a unique advantage that the discipline of software brings to the table. Maintenance can be best served not by searching for ways of obliterating it, as some have suggested, but by searching for ways of doing it more effectively and efficiently
