In-process evaluation for software inspection and test

J.K. Chaar, M.J. Halliday, I.S. Bhandari, R. Chillarege
1993 IEEE Transactions on Software Engineering  
The goal of software inspection and test is to reduce the expected cost of software failure over the life of a product.  ...  This paper extends the use of defect higgers, the eventsthat cause defects to be discovered, to help evaluate the effectiveness of inspections and test scenarios.  ...  The method should thus be considered, at least for experimental use.  ...

Object-Oriented Reading Techniques for Inspection of UML Models – An Industrial Experiment [chapter]

Reidar Conradi, Parastoo Mohagheghi, Tayyaba Arif, Lars Christian Hegde, Geir Arne Bunde, Anders Pedersen
2003 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Software inspections are used to cost-efficiently increase the quality of the developed software by early defect detection and correction.  ...  The results showed that the OORTs fit well into an incremental development process, and managed to detect defects not found by the existing reading techniques.  ...  Acknowledgements We thank Ericsson in Grimstad for the opportunity and help to perform the experiment with ten of their designers and several managers, who all were highly motivated.  ...

A family of experiments to investigate the effects of groupware for software inspection

Stefan Biffl, Paul Grünbacher, Michael Halling
2006 Automated Software Engineering : An International Journal  
This paper presents the Groupware-supported Inspection Process (GRIP) and describes tools for inspecting software requirements.  ...  We have thus developed a set of groupware tools for both individual defect detection and inspection meetings to lower the effort of inspections and to increase their efficiency.  ...  We want to thank the participants of all three experiments and in particular Martin Weninger for their contributions.

An experimental comparison of reading techniques for defect detection in UML design documents

Oliver Laitenberger, Colin Atkinson, Maud Schlich, Khaled El Emam
2000 Journal of Systems and Software  
The basic motivation for software inspections is to detect and remove defects before they propagate to subsequent development phases where their detection and removal becomes more expensive.  ...  This implies the need for systematic reading techniques that tell inspection participants what to look for and, more importantly, how to scrutinise a software document.  ...  Acknowledgements We want to extend our very warm thanks to the participants of this experiment.
