In-process inspections of workproducts at AT&T

  title={In-process inspections of workproducts at AT&T},
  author={Priscilla J. Fowler},
  journal={AT&T Technical Journal},
In-process inspections are examination meetings held to find defects in design and development workproducts, including intermediate versions of the product or system in requirements and design documents. Because these inspections delimit the phases of design and development processes, they can prevent the passage of defects from one phase to the next and significantly reduce the number of defects released to customers. Software development projects within AT&T's research and development… CONTINUE READING
