A Nomogram to Simplify the Choice of Sampling Plan Using a Single Gauge

Summary: To simplify the choice of a single gauge sampling plan used to control a process in which the variation follows a normal distribution with known standard deviation, the acceptance number c is taken as (n - 1)/2, where n is the sample size. This relationship is always nearly optimal and permits the use of a simple nomogram to find the parameters of a plan that meets the user's requirements.
