Defects per Opportunity (DPO) - definition(s)

DPO - Defects per opportunity (DPO) represents total defects divided by total opportunities.

DPO is a preliminary calculation to help you calculate DPMO (defects per million opportunities). Multiply DPO by one million to calculate DPMO.

Example: If there are 34 defects out of 750 units having 10 oppurtunities per unit, then DPO=34/750*10=0.045/10=0.0045
