Title: Design and Analysis of Probability of Visual Detection for Surface Dents
Author(s): Sabyasachi Basu*+ and Fritz Scholz and Julio L. Peixoto and Thompson Jeffrey
Companies: Boeing Company and Boeing Company and Boeing Company and Boeing Company
Address: PO Box 3707, MC-7L-22, Seattle, WA, 98124-2207,
Keywords: design of experiments ; presenting statistical results ; logistic regression ; probability of detection

We discuss the design and anlysis of the probability of visual detection (Visual POD) of the surface dents. The experimental factors chosen for this study were surface shininess and distance from which the inspections were made. Several inspectors were used in the study. The results that were obtained from the experiments and the POD curves are presented into an Excel-based tool. We will discuss the experimental design, the analysis, the results, and the contraints that we dealt with when doing this study.
