6.2. Test Product for Acceptability: Lot Acceptance Sampling


How do you Choose a Single Sampling Plan?

Two methods for choosing a single sample acceptance plan A single sampling plan, as previously defined, is specified by the pair of numbers (n,c). The sample size is n, and the lot is rejected if there are more than c defectives in the sample; otherwise the lot is accepted.

There are two widely used ways of picking (n,c):

  1. Use tables (such as MIL STD 105D) that focus on either the AQL or the LTPD desired.
  2. Specify 2 desired points on the OC curve and solve for the (n,c) that uniquely determines an OC curve going through these points.
The next two pages describe these methods in detail.
