Abstract:

An equation that does not require tables is given to determine a one-sided tolerance limit for the 100 Pth percentile of a normal distribution with confidence 1-gamma for any sample size n. This equation gives accuracy to approximately three or more significant digits when compared to tabled values. Thus it is possible to develop an automated procedure for determining tolerance limits that is not restricted to tabled values. Author
