An experimental comparison of reading techniques for defect detection in UML design documents
The basic motivation for software inspections is to detect and remove defects before they propagate to subsequent development phases where their detection and removal becomes more expensive. To attain this potential, the examination of the artefact under inspection must be as thorough and detailed as possible. This implies the need for systematic reading techniques that tell inspection participants what to look for and, more importantly, how to scrutinise a software document. Recent research efforts investigated the benefits of scenario-based reading techniques for defect detection in functional requirements and functional code documents. A major finding has been that these techniques help inspection teams find more defects than existing state-of-the-practice approaches, such as, ad-hoc or checklist-based reading (CBR). In this paper we describe and experimentally compare one scenariobased reading technique, namely perspective-based reading (PBR), for defect detection in objectoriente...
