How to Perform Skip-Lot and Chain Sampling, Second Edition
This booklet is a companion to How to Perform Continuous Sampling (CSP) from the ASQ Statistics Division Basic References in Quality Control series. It describes how to design and use skip-lot and chain sampling plans. These procedures are most often used for the acceptance and rejection of lots where the basic sampling element is the lot itself rather than the acceptance or rejection of units from a continuous process. These plans are especially suited for bulk sampling or for sequences of lots whose order of production is preserved, and are extremely useful where the cost of testing is high and minimum samples sizes are imperative.
