Inspections is a software management technique designed to produce higher quality software and improve programmer productivity. These improvements are achieved through rigorous examination of the products in each phase of the software development life-cycle. While the process has generally been applied to large-scale mainframe projects, this research demonstrates successful implementation of inspections in a small-scale, micro-processor based software development project.
