The most commonly used inspection metrics are
Total number of defects = A+ B – CWhere A and B are the total number of defects detected by reviewer 1 andreviewer 2 while C is the total number of common defects detected by bothreviewers
Defect density is the ratio of the number of defects found to the size of theartefactDefect Density = Total defects found / Size
Estimated Total Number of Defects is the sum of the total number of defectsfound and the estimated total number of defects remaining.Capture recapture approach detects total number of defects.
Estimated Total Number of Defects = A * B / C (by considering only tworeviews for simplicity)The Defect Removal Efficiency (DRE) of an inspection process is also termed asInspection Yield, which is 
Inspection Yield = Total Defects Found / Estimated Total Defects * 100 %Defect Removal Efficiency is a measure for the defect removal ability in thedevelopment process. This measurement can be either for the entire life cycle or for each phase of the development life cycle. Use of DRE at front end (before thecode integration) is early defect removal and when used at specific phase, it is phase effectiveness. 
DRE = (Defects removed during a development phase / defects latent in the product)* 100%Latent defects is the sum of defects removed during the phase and the defectsfound late
Inspection Time is the total inspection time measured in hours which is given byInspection Time = Sum of each reviewer’s review time + total person time spentin each meeting
Inspection Rate can be computed with the inspection time and the size of theartefact, which is measurable in terms of number of pages or LOC or other such measures asInspection Rate = Size / Total Inspection TimeThe defect detection Rate is estimated based on efficiency in detecting the defectswhich is computed as
