Abstract

Inspection is widely believed to be the most cost-effective method for detecting defects in documents produced during the software development lifecycle. However, it is by its very nature a labour intensive process. This has led to work on computer support for the process which should increase the efficiency and effectiveness beyond what is currently possible with a solely manual process. In this paper we describe the scope for tool support for the inspection process and review currently available products. We conclude that no single tool available fills all the identified needs of inspection
