Abstract : Maintenance plays an important role in the software development life cycle. A software project is delivered within estimated time only if all the phases of software development process are completed within estimated and primarily set up time. Various researchers have made substantial tools and techniques to achieve the quality of software maintenance phase. But at the same time, the field requires a future research work to enhance the quality of software and to reduce the challenges of maintenance phase. It has been estimated that there are more than 100 billion lines of code in production in the world. As much as 80% of it is unstructured, repaired and not well documented. Maintenance can relieve these problems. This paper describes the major activity and process of maintenance phase along with its key issues.
