General Edit

Corrective maintenance is

[m]aintenance carried out after fault recognition and intended to restore equipment to a state in which it can perform a required function.[1]
[a]ll actions performed as a result of a failure to restore an item to a specified condition. Corrective maintenance can include any or all of the following steps: localization, isolation, disassembly, interchange, reassembly, alignment, and checkout.[2]

Software Edit

Corrective maintenance is done to "fix" the software (i.e., remove errors or "bugs") so it will perform as originally intended, and not to modify the software to provide new functionality.
