The contributions of systems-re-engineering in dealing with legacy systems have been proved to be invaluable. On the other hand,the determination of original user requirements for which a legacy system was originally planned to address is such an important step in the re-engineering process that errors may invite yet yet another legacy system right at birth. This paper looks at how organizational-based approaches to the recovery process may produce original user requirements that may not be genuine.
