Software Inspectionby Tom Gilb
Synopses & Reviews
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)
The aim of this book is to show students how to achieve high-quality software through inspection, which can be defined as "a formal review of documents to find errors, giving effective statistical process improvement". It illustrates the benefits of the technique.
Includes bibliographical references (p. 451-455) and index.
