Abstract: Does a zero defect sample really mean there are zero defects? This spreadsheet utilizes a special case of the Poisson distribution to predict the worse case percent defective in a population where the sample was defect free. Use it to evaluate your current sampling process. Understanding risk is an important step when making good business decisions.

Keywords: Zero Defects; Poisson distribution; sampling
