On sampling inspection plans

  • Yukio Suzuki


In D.R.S.I.P., the sampling inspection plan adopted has no relation with the state of the production process except its average fraction defective. We think this fact shows an important weak-point of Dodge-Remng's plan. In this paper, we have shown another sampling scheme, where we use more information about the production process, given in the form of the a priori distribution. Therefore, in actual case, it is important to estimate the a priori distribution as exactly as possible. The role of the a prior distribution in sampling inspection plan was emphasized by G. A. Barnard [3].
