Article Abstract

The assignment of inspectors in a finite lot production environment is a common and difficult problem. When published sampling plans are used, the expected number of inspections for all lots combined may exceed the resource of inspectors available. Further, it is unlikely that such plans economically allocate the inspector resource among lots. A heuristic methodology is outlined which generates a set of interrelated single sampling plans that fully utilize the resource while minimizing the cost of passing nonconforming items.
