Abstract

Undoubtedly, an effective but expensive way of providing conforming items to a customer is making a complete inspection of all items before shipping. In an ideal situation, a process designed to assure zero defects would not need inspection at all. In practice, a compromise between these two extremes is attained, and acceptance sampling is the quality control technique that allows reducing the level of inspection according to the process performance. This chapter shows how to apply acceptance sampling using R and the related ISO standards.
