Peer Reviews & Inspections
Why Should Your Team Conduct Peer Reviews?
What is a Peer Review?
The IEEE/ISO/IEC Systems and Software Engineering Vocabulary defines a review as “a process or meeting during which a work product, or set of work products, is presented to project personnel, managers, users, customers, or other interested parties for comment or approval.” [IEEE/ISO/IEC 2017]
A peer review is a special type of technical review where one or more of the Author’s peers evaluate a work product to identify defects, obtain a confidence level that the product meets its requirements, and/or identify opportunities to improve that work product. The Author of a work product is the person that either originally produced that work product or the person who is currently responsible for maintaining that work product.
