Poisson Distribution Calculator

This SRC calculation tool has been developed for the SRC user to handle arduous Poisson discrete distribution calculations for reliability analysis. Similar to the Binomial Distribution Calculator, also found in the SRC Toolbox, this calculator lets the user solve for:

  • Confidence Level
  • Failure Rate
  • Time Period
  • Maximum Number of Failures

In addition, this calculator can solve for:

  • Probability of Failure
  • Sparing Analysis

Sparing Analysis feature is an option that lets the user to determine the number of spare Line Replacement Units (LRU) that must be initially available in order to ensure an acceptable level of mission or usage availability.

SRC wishes to thank Mr. Leonard Stascavage for his generosity and support by providing the algorithms that were used to develop this web base tool.
