Article Abstract

[This abstract is based on the authors' abstract.]

A method of reducing sample size while maintaining an established degree of protection is offered, using mixed acceptance sampling plans, a two-stage sampling procedure, with chain sampling as attribute plan. The procedure for designing the plan indexed through AQL and IQL is demonstrated. The method is applicable to batch production processes that are steady and continuous, with lots submitted in order of production, and inspection is first by variable and later by attribute.
