Abstract:

Software inspection is an industry-proven process for improving quality and reducing cost and schedule risks during software development. Software inspections are highly effective at detecting and eliminating defects, especially during the early phases of software development. Unfortunately, the software inspection process is not widely used by DoD contractors. The Ballistic Missile Division Organization BMDO tasked IDA to promote awareness of this defect detection process to several BMD program offices. This report summarizes information collected, developed, and distributed to those program offices. IDA efforts to insert the process into BMDO policies, standards, and the Brilliant Eyes software development program are described.
