This area addresses the application of sampling plans. The methods of design and evaluations are based on the use of oc-curves and the margin-of-error.

The goal is:

bulletfor acceptance sampling:  prevent the use of existing off-grade materials, products, processes, and services. (glossary)
bulletfor audit sampling:  obtain an estimate of the fraction "defective" having a specified margin of error. (glossary)

The topics to the left address the following areas.

bulletThe practice of using two points on the oc-curve to develop acceptance sampling plans
bulletThe practice of using the margin-of-error to develop audit sampling plans
bulletA comprehensive tutorial on developing acceptance sampling plans
bulletPractices for adapting sampling plans to specific situations
