Graphs, Tables and Discussion to Aid in the Design and Evaluation of an Acceptance Sampling Procedure Based on Cumulative Sums

Summary: An acceptance sampling procedure for attributes inspection proposed by Beattie seems well suited for situations when production is continuous, sampling is destructive, a constant sampling rate is required, and discrimination between two quality levels is required with a small sample size. This paper describes the Beattie procedure, briefly presents the underlying mathematics, indicates strengths and weaknesses, and presents graphs for determining a plan.
