Effectiveness of Human Error Taxonomy during Requirements Inspection: An Empirical Investigation

  title={Effectiveness of Human Error Taxonomy during Requirements Inspection: An Empirical Investigation},
  author={Vaibhav Anu and G. Walia and W. Hu and Jeffrey C. Carver and Gary L. Bradshaw},
Software inspections are an effective method for achieving high quality software. [...] Key Result Results of this study show that subjects using HET were not only more effective at detecting faults, but they found faults faster. Post-hoc analysis of HET also revealed meaningful insights into the most commonly occurring human errors at different points during requirements development. The results provide motivation and feedback for further refining HET and creating formal inspection tools based on HET. Keywords…Expand
