Code Inspection: why, when and what
Why should you inspect software?
Code Inspection Pays For Itself
Software code inspection offers both immediate and long-term return on investment.
Research has yielded these findings:
- Code inspection is up to 20 times more efficient than testing.
- Code reading detected about 80% more faults per hour than testing.
- Debugging and associated rework takes about 50% of the time spent in a typical software development cycle.
