I have been asked ( volunteering myself to be precise) to create a complete software framework to replace the existing software. Existing software "works" but has always been painful when Engineers had to use it. Too Buggy/unstable and way too complex architecture We have been cribbing about it and Management treated as low priority because we had enough day to day work.

This week , they informed me that "rework/upgrade" is still low priority but I (since I complained the lot or was louder) can start thinking about changing it and it may change to higher priority in future.

Good news : I have been given freedom to either upgrade/rework or start from scratch.
Bad news : I have to work on this when there some "free" time. and it has no "official" cost center

So based on this situation, does it make sense to start from scratch or apply Band-Aid to existing framework.
cheers,
Super
