<p>The use of code inspection to detect errors in ultralarge software projects is discussed. In particular, quantitative results based on a 1988 study of inspection of 2.5 million lines of high-level code at Bell-Northern Research are presented. The data represent one of the largest published studies in the industry and confirm that code inspection is still one of the most efficient ways to remove software defects. How to introduce inspections in large-scale production environments successfully is described.</p>
