Abstract

A long-term experiment is being conducted to compare the costs and benefits of several different software inspection methods. For each inspection, three independent variables are assigned: the number of reviewers on each inspection team, the number of teams inspecting the code unit and the requirement that defects be repaired between the first and second team's inspections. The reviewers for each inspection are randomly selected without replacement from a pool of 11 experienced software developers. The dependent variables for each inspection include inspection interval, total effort and defect detection rate.
