2007:04 Link Between RI-ISI and Inspection Qualification: Relationship between Defect Detection Rate and Margin of Detection

A relationship has been established between defect detection ratio and margin of detection based on blind trails. The results are based on a rather small amount of data produced by personnel from one inspection laboratory but give us indications of how signal to noise ratio is possible to relate to the probability of detection (POD) used in RI-ISI models. The relationship need to be developed with more data to put the results on a more solid basis.
