Verification Strategies - Overview to Walkthroughs.

Walkthrough is a static analysis technique in which a designer or programmer leads members of the development team and other interested parties through a segment of documentation or code, and the participants ask questions and make comments about possible errors, violation of development standards, and other problems.
the objectives of Walkthrough can be summarized as follows:
- Detect the errors early.
- Train and exchange technical information among project teams which participate in the walkthrough.
- Increase the quality of the project, thereby improving morale of the team members.
The participants in walkthroughs assume the role of a walk-through leader, recorder, author and a team member.
To consider a review as a systematic walk-through, a team of at least two members shall be assembled. Roles may be shared among the tam members. the walk-through leader or the author may serve as the recorder. The walk-through leader may be the author.
Individuals holding management positions over any member of the walk-through team shall not participate in the walk-through.

- A statement of objectives for the walk-through.
- The software product being examined.
