Abstract:

The Poisson distribution is an excellent approximation of the bionomial distribution. Its formula, uses and limitations can be found in many statistics books. It is noted that the lower the defect rate, the better these numbers approximate the more exact binomial distribution. This compilation of Poisson numbers was designed to perform two functions to estimate reliability quickly and to prepare operating characteristic curves. The FORTRAN Program used to generate these numbers was written by the author and is in Appendix A. Author
