Sampling for Process Audits 2010 Institute for Continual Quality Improvement Presentation
Abstract: Sampling inspection plans, techniques, and standards have been around for quite some time. These are focused on acceptance sampling for variables and attributes and can be applied to a wide variety of situations in manufacturing and service industries. These techniques need to be tailored for an effective application for a process audit. In this engaging and interactive presentation, the author tells the story of his quest for applying sampling inspection to process audits. The structured problem-solving approach undertaken by the author and team to create an appropriate sampling plan for this situation are presented.
