This paper presents an agile reverse engineering process, referred to as PARFAIT/RE, which has been abstracted from the use of a framework-based agile reengineering process, named PARFAIT 3 . The proposition of PARFAIT/RE has been evidenced from an analysis done in a reengineering case study of a medium size system. Several factors collaborate to make PARFAIT/RE agile: a) active participation of legacy system users to validate the artifacts created and to suggest new requirements or the removal

GRN belongs to the business resource management domain and supports object oriented modeling of procedural legacy systems. The analysis models created are used to support the framework instantiation. * Financial support from FAPESP grant 00/10881-4 ♦ ♦ ♦ ♦ Financial support from CNPq 3 PARFAIT is the acronym for Processo Ágil de Reengenharia baseado em FrAmework no domínio de sistemas de Informação com vv&T (in Portuguese), which means "Frameworkbased Agile Reengineering Process in the Information System Domain with VV&T".
