The advantages of inspections over testing

Many defects found in testing are directly traceable to requirements and design flaws that
could have been detected earlier


1.Defects that are found later in the project will not only cost
more to fix, but also work that are from incorrect design and/or requirements are wasted
2.The strengths of
inspections are that a similar process can be applied to a wide range of documents
3.It can it be much easier to find
faults in code standard and traceability with inspection than it is with testing This is because
inspection will find the fault in the code and testing will only find the failure
4.The first is that inspection can found many defects in a single inspection session
