Purpose: Technical Debt and the subsequent problems are discussed often in industry and
scientic journals. In this paper, we introduce a framework for managing technical Debt. The
solution consists of methods to manage and repay technical debt. The goal of the framework
is to provide a better overview of the Technical Debt items for the IT Development team
and SMEs. Technical Debt calculation is the cost of fixing structural quality issues in an
application that, if left unfixed, puts the business at critical risk. Technical Debt typically
includes issues that are highly likely to cause severe business disruption; and may not
include all problems, just the most critically serious ones.Technical Debt describe problems

technical improvements are neglected over a longer time. In atechnical metaphor to financial
debt, the workaroundis interpreted as the debt and the resulting problemsas interest rates.
