In software development projects, document artifacts have an important role as a form of communication. As a result, many documents are prepared and updated frequently in a large software system development project. In such a situation, it is difficult to analyze and review many documents manually. Recently, there are many researches for analyzing document artifacts by applying technologies such as document structure analysis, string analysis and natural language processing. In this paper, we review the works on document artifact analyisis technologies and their applications.
