Acceptance Sampling by Variables

Many companies use attribute sampling plans at incoming, in-process, and final inspection. The common approach uses ANSI/ASQ Z1.4. There is an alternate, however, that may reduce cost. Sampling plans based on ANSI/ASQ Z1.9 can reduce cost by requiring smaller sample sizes.

Understanding Attribute Acceptance Sampling Plans Including the Z1.4 and c=0 Plans

Attribute acceptance sampling is a common tool for medical device manufacturers. Unfortunately, many people don't understand the underlying concepts or the basis for decision making. This presentation explains the underlying ideas of attribute sampling plans and how to use the two most common published plans, Z1.4 and c=0. In addition, the presentation describes the major differences between the approaches. Attribute sampling plans are characterized by the operating characteristic curve (OC curve) which provides the basis for sampling risk. The presentation explains how to read the OC and use it to help select sampling plans.
