Reviews of Standards and Specifications: Sampling by Variables to Control the Fraction Defective, Part II

Summary: The paper, as a sequel to the historical and theoretical approach of Part I, provides the practical information on the matching of variables sampling plans to those in the existing attributes standard. Of the many possible types of matching possible, two types are tabulated here. The first is a match on two points of the OC curve, namely at the AQL and P.10 points. The second is a one-point match at the AQL with constant sample size for each Code Letter. The k values obtained in this second method are compared with those of MIL-STD-414.
