Abstract:

Tolerance limits are formulated for the Maxwell distribution, and a table of tolerance limit factors for the upper tolerance bound is provided as a function of P percent of the population below the bound, gamma confidence level, and n sample size. Values of P, gamma, and n considered are P .50, . 75, .90, .95, .99 gamma .75, .90, .95, .99 n 212551001020050 3001001000, infinity. While the formulation is sufficiently general to be of use to anyone who deals with Maxwell data, examples are restricted to the area of weapon systems analysis.
