The authors combine principles from software inspection, use cases, and operational profile testing to create the usage-based reading technique, in which the user reads a design document guided by prioritized use cases. UBR takes the user's viewpoint on software and the faults it might contain. Evaluation showed that the method is more effective and efficient in finding faults that are critical to the user than are checklist-based methods.
