    I have a question on defect rate of roll throughput yield.
    I would like to know how to calculation defect rate on roll throughput yield by operation.
    Example :
    Operation A : loading input 1000 pcs. found faliure part 10 pcs. , Yield = 90%
    Operation B : loading input 990 pcs. found faliure part 20 pcs. , Yield = 97.9%
    Operation C : loading input 970 pcs. Found faliure part 70 pcs. Yield = 92.7%
    Roll thorugh put yiled = yield of operation A * yield of operation B * yield of operation C = 90.0% And defect rate = 10.0 %

    My question is how to calculate the defect rate by operation.
    I tried to weighted the defect by operation
    Example : Total defect of operation A,B,C 100 pcs. Defect of RTY = 10 %.
    Operation A : defect = (Total defect * defect of operation A)/100 = 1 %
    Operation B : defect = (Total defect * defect of operation B)/100 = 2 %
    Operation C : defect = (Total defect * defect of operation C)/100 = 7 %

    But this calculation did not represent the actual defect of operation.
    Defect by operation of operation A = 10 % Versus Defect of roll throught 1%.
    The defect rate is quite different. The RTY defect is 10% which how to caluation defect that is represent the actual defect by operation.

    Would you like to help suggestion and advice ?

    Since RTY is the product of the yields from all operations in the process it is not applicable to individual operations. Why are you trying to work backwards since you’ve already measured defect rate and yield for each operation?

    The first section (just after Example:) is the only thing that is needed. You identify the correct way to calculate RTY, but then show the wrong value (RTY = Yield A * Yield B * Yield C) this does not equal 90% (redo the calculation). This also does not equal a defect rate of 10% (nor does it represent the total defect rate). The RTY gives you the probability of a product being produced without any defects (there are a number of categories of defects, from actual wrong dimensions, to excessive processing, rework, inventory, etc.). For each process step, the defect rate is merely 100% – the step yield.
    Hope this helps.

    the way u calculated is having the same results as by 100%-yeild.
    its correct and also explained with correction in formula.

    the total is infact 10% which is also correct and can get by adding percentages if the sample size is almost same or having very less variation in all operations. otherwise percentage addition wont work.

    if the sample size is differnet then defect will be the addition of defects in all operations and sample size will be the average of all operations. and formula will be,
    Def % overall = Total Def *100%/ sample size Avg

    the above formula will show the defect% of overall production and for each operation below formula is correct.

    operation A. Defect of A*100%/sample size of A
    Operation B. Defect of B*100%/ sample size of B.

    Operation C……

    for 100% inspection, sample size will be the production of process.

    I hope this will work
