The aim of this chapter is to develop a theoretical model to assist in the analysis of critical inputs to software reviews and to identify process factors that might impact positively on software review performance. The Explicit, Implicit Input-process-Output (EIIO) model provides a sound theory to drive empirical research in software review and a different perspective to the existing literature that helps to facilitate understanding of the input-process-output relationship in software review process. An overall objective of the EIIO model is to identify what the key inputs are and process factor(s) that significantly influence review outcome(s). Five propositions, ten research questions, and 14 hypotheses are formulated to validate the important relationships between software inputs, processes, and performance.
