Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Zero-defect software is the Holy Grail of all software developers. It has proved to be an elusive goal - until now. The Inspection techniques illustrated in this book have brought clear benefits in terms of lower (or even zero) defects, higher productivity, better project tracking and improved documentation.

Book News Annotation:

The Holy Grail is zero-defect software, and the techniques presented here help software developers get nearer that goal. They are based (with improvements and extensions) on Michael E. Fagan's Inspection method, developed for IBM and first published by him in a Technical Report, December 1974. The benefits are lower defects, higher productivity, better project tracking, and improved documentation.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
