Design Reviews:

A design review is a technical meeting that is held at an early stage in the software development process. The purpose of design reviews is to ensure that the design satisfies the requirements and is of “good quality.” If errors are made during the design process, they will ultimately reflect themselves in the code and the final system. Detecting errors in design is the aim of design reviews.  Design Review is highly efficient, and it often saves time and money. Design Review identifies weak and inappropriate schemes at an early stage, when radical changes can be made with a minimum of wasted time and effort. Design Review supports and encourages good design and innovative proposals. Design review is a milestone within a product development process that evaluates a design based on its requirements to verify the results of previous activities and identify problems before they are completed re transform if necessary additional work.
