IEEE 1028 Standard for Software Reviews

In these days quality assuarance in software development projects is more important then ever.
Reviews are a good thing beside tests to check if the software under development meets the definied architecture and standards.
IEEE has a standard for reviews. It’s called IEEE 1028 (2008) standard for software reviews.

The IEEE 1028 defines five types of reviews:
– Management reviews
– Technical reviews
– Inspections
– Walk-throughs
– Audits

The standard describes the purpose of these five types and defines how to use these review technics. It’s really worth reading.
