Probability of detection

Dear professionals,
Please see linked document below for POD and PFA.
What does upper right point (POD=1 & PFA=1) in ROC curve mean?
By definition, POD +PFA must be unity.

Thank you

Your statement that POD + POFA must be unity is incorrect. They are independent

Example
There are 20 samples with flaws in 10.
An inspection calls flaws in all 20.
Then POD is 10/10= 1.0
POFA = 10/10 = 1.0

Reliability = POD (1-POFA) = 0

To Anmol Birring,
Yes your right. I totally mis-understood the document.
Thank you.

A quantitative result can be calculated by the probability of detection (POD) and the possibility of false alarms (PFA).
