Development teams know and understand the value of performing code reviews, but many may not be aware that as much as 64 percent of total defects comes from the requirements and design phases. Have you stopped to consider the value of reviewing requirements, design documents or even your documentation? Reviewing software development artifacts such as requirements and design docs gives teams the opportunity to ensure quality throughout the entire development lifecycle. Just as teams review source code, they should review other software artifacts as well.

In this interactive round table discussion, attendees learn the importance of document review within the development lifecycle, why we overlook reviewing artifacts such as design documents, test cases and user stories as well as the importance of root cause analysis and how to prevent future issues. The discussion also includes best practices used by NASA, Lockheed Martin, General Dynamics and Elbit Systems and why document review has become a critical piece of their software development lifecycle.
