Chapter 2: Review formality spectrum, Activity Diagram & Success Factors

Review formality spectrum (RFS)

QualityProTech (QPT) has defined the spectrum of review processes which varies from least formal to most formal review technique. It can vary from organisation to organisation.

Review Activity Diagram

RAD (review activity diagram) is the matrix of review activities against review types. It explains which activity is required or not. e.g.

For most formal review (inspection), you need to have all review activities on place.
And for least formal review, you only need to set up meetings to find defects and team to resolve those defects.
