    Technical review
  23. Peer review
    A review of a software product by colleagues of the producer of the product for the purpose of identifying defects and improvements.  Examples are inspection, technical review and walkthrough.

    Peer Review
  25. Inspection
    A type of peer review that relies on visual examination of documents to detect defects, e.g. violations of development standards and non-conformance to higher level documentation.  The most formal review technique and therefore always based on a documented procedure.

  27. Static Analysis
    Analysis of software artifacts, e.g. requirements or code, carried out without execution of these artifacts.  Usually carried out by means of a supporting tool.

  31. Complexity
    The degree to which a component or system has a design and/or internal structure that is difficult to understand, maintain, and verify.

  33. Cyclomatic complexity
    • The number of independent paths through a program.
    • L - N +2P, where L=the number of edges/links in a graph. N=the number of nodes in a graph, and P=the number of disconnected parts of the graph (called graph or subroutine)
