Principles from software inspection, use cases, and operational profile testing are combined into the usage-based reading technique. The goal is to provide an efficient reading technique for software inspections, which takes the user viewpoint on the software and the faults it might contain. The user reads, for example, a design document guided by prioritized use cases. An experimental evaluation shows that the UBR method is more effective and efficient in finding faults, critical to the user, compared to checklist-based methods.

Index Terms:
checklist-based reading, controlled experiment, empirical study, reading technique, software inspection, software review, usage-based reading
