Definition

One piece of work, usually a finished product, but this can also be used to designate one piece of work-in-process from a feeder department or manufacturing cell. Definition of a unit is important when using the Defects per Unit metric and when distinguishing it from Defects per Opportunity (DPO) and Defects per Million Opportunities (DPMO).
