Abstract:

Solutions based on a normal approximation to the incomplete beta function are obtained for one of the parameters in terms of the others in order to set up distribution-free tolerance limits. Numerical examples indicate that the approximations are very reasonable. These considerations are extended to the generalized tolerance limits which are analogous to fixed-width confidence intervals with specified confidence coefficient. Also considered are tolerance limits with a specified precision.
