Where is the binomial reliability calculation hiding?

I'm doing a binary test (pass/fail) and the number of acceptable failures depends on the sample size and acceptance/confidence limits. It's a binomial reliability calculation. I can find reliability lifetimes but no basic sample size calculator that takes failures into account. MiniTab has it clearly available, and I found very simple online calculators, but I need to document the calculations in JMP. Where is it? I'm not opposed to scripts, but this seems like something that should be readily available.

Thanks, but I've looked through here already. I don't see any options for evaluating reliability with binary outcomes when failures are possible. I see how to do time to failure testing, but that's different than having no time variable. I still don't see anything relevant.

Help > Books > Design of Experiments Guide. There is an entire chapter about the sample size and power calculators.
