Notes

1. Michael Fagan originated the term “Inspection” in connection with software within IBM.
He developed the initial method for Quality-Control of software. It is based on the Work of Walter Shewhart,
Joseph Juran and others, who used the term for Quality-Control of products (rather than of specifications).
Given the confusion in Engineering environments over the use of the term “Inspection” (to hardware engineers
it Means Quality-Control After production of something), I prefer to use the term, SQC.

2. Many people incorrectly equate the Defect-Detection-Process (DDP) with “Inspection.” They omit the
Defect-Prevention-Process (DPP). This is because they are unaware of the additional developments to
Inspection introduced by Mays and Jones [MAYS95].
