Economic Evaluation of ISO 2859 Acceptance Sampling Plans Used with Rectifying Inspection of Rejected Lots

Summary: [This abstract is based on the authors' abstract.] Companies often use convenient standards to conduct acceptance sampling, but these standards do not consider quality costs. Inspired by a Greek company that uses the Greek equivalent to ISO 2859 for the quality control of its incoming raw materials, this study examines the economic feasibility of using the single-sampling plans recommended by the latest update of ISO 2859. Results indicate that the use of standards is not economically rewarding, therefore simple rules for efficient application of the standards are provided.
