Porter, A.A., Sly, H.P., Toman, C.A., Votta, L.G., "An experiment to assess the cost-benefits of code inspections in large scale software development", IEEE Transactions on Software Engineering, 23, 6, June 1997, pp. 329-346. Google

329 ;;Quote: a typical release of the 5ESS switch is 0.5M lines of new and changed code on a base of 5M lines
329+;;Quote: a typical release of the 5ESS switch requires 1,500 inspections with four or more participants
331 ;;Quote: study of 130 software reviews during the development of 55K new lines of C++ code; managed and observed by an inspection quality engineer
331+;;Quote: random selection of software review treatments: 1,2, or 4 reviewers with 1 or 2 review sessions or 2 reviews with defect repair; all reviewers prepared ahead of time
331+;;Quote: during a review, one reviewer paraphrases the code, one reviewer is the moderator, and the author compiles the master list of defects
335 ;;Quote: issues reported across all code inspections: 22% false positives, 60% readability or coding standards, 18% true defects and inefficiencies; studied true defects
338 ;;Quote: two-sessions were no better than single session reviews and took twice as long
338+;;Quote: one reviewer plus author found fewer true defects than two- or four-reviewer teams
342 ;;Quote: review meetings located 30% of the true defects; the remainder were found during preparation; like Humphrey, while Votta studied design inspections
