This paper describes an experimental evaluation of two reading techniques, namely Checklist-based reading (CBR) and Perspective-based reading (PBR) for Object-Oriented (OO) design document, written using the notation of Unified Modelling Language, inspection. Inspections are usually applied for defect detection in requirement documents or code modules, and there is a significant lack of information how inspections should be applied to OO design documents.

The paper reports on a controlled experiment with 59 subject students to compare CBR and PBR techniques with respect to individual time spent on inspection, cost per defect, effectiveness, and 3-person simulated team effectiveness.
