This two day program offers the peer review techniques of Product Review, Structured Walkthrough and Fagan Style Inspections. These approaches vary in level of detail, applicability and formality. While the walkthrough is the static testing technique most frequently employed, the formality of the Inspection helps to find the most errors at the detailed deliverable level.
With increased quality and error detection as the primary objectives of each review, the producer is given the benefit of his or her colleagues' critique, prior to formal construction and testing. To facilitate the experience of constructive and synergistic walkthroughs, each attendee participates in multiple reviews as reviewer and producer. Some less obvious, but beneficial by-products of peer reviews include: Team commitment to each piece of the project; Quicker knowledge transfer for team members; Better understanding of other parts of the deliverables; Lower testing, development and maintenance costs; and certainly, increased quality, "The first time!"
