transcript=In contrast to informal reviews, formal reviews follow a formal process. A typical formal review process consists of six main steps:
1. Planning
2. Kick-off
3. Preparation
4. Review meeting
5. Rework
6. Follow-up.

Let us understand each one of these steps in more detail.

Planning – The review process for a particular review begins with a ‘request for review’ by the author to the moderator (or inspection leader) with a clear objective. A moderator is often assigned to take care of the scheduling (dates, time, place and invitation) of the review.
For more formal reviews, e.g. inspections, the moderator always performs an entry check and
defines at this stage formal exit criteria. The entry check is carried out to ensure that the reviewers’ time is not wasted on a document that is not ready for review.
Moderator and author decide which part of the document to review. Because the human mind can comprehend a limited set of pages at one time, the number should not be too high. For a review, the maximum size is usually between 10 and 20 pages. In formal inspection, only a page or two may be looked at in depth in order to find the most serious defects that are not obvious.
