# Defects Per Opportunity Calculator

Defects per Opportunity(DPO) is a preliminary calculation that helps you in the DPMO (defects per million opportunities). It is a metrics that define the number of defects in a process per opportunity. It measures the probability of units produced with zero defects in a process. It means a part or unit that have low as one opportunity for a defect or infinite opportunities for defects. Use our online Defects per opportunity calculator to do DPO six sigma calculation based on your inputs.

#### Formula:

u = (o / i)
**Where,**
u = Defects Per Opportunity
o = Number of Defects Observed on a Unit
i = Number of Opportunities on a Unit
### Example:

Calculate the defects per opportunity for the number of defects observed on a unit of 85 and number of opportunities on a unit of 225.

#### Solution:

u = (85 / 225)

= 0.3778
