In this paper we will analyse the software inspections related published data of different successful companies. We will compare the impact of software inspections on software quality with other software quality assurance techniques like software tests etc. Our analysis will show that software inspections play the most important role in software quality assurance. We will also briefly discuss what the Software Inspections are; the benefits of Software Inspections; The team structure in a formal inspection; and the activities in an inspection process. We will also discuss the future of Software Inspections.
