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.

I've found a copy of IEEE 1028 (1997) for free: http://membres.multimania.fr/benoitouellet/Peer_rev.pdf

If you would like to have the newest version you can buy it form IEEE here: http://ieeexplore.ieee.org/xpl/freeabs_all.jsp?arnumber=4601584
