Reviews of Standards and Related Material: Comparing Acceptance Sampling Standards, Part 1

Summary: In this first part of a two-part series, common attribute sampling standards are discussed and compared. Military standard 105 (MIL-STD-105) is the premier attribute sampling standard that has led to a number of derivative standards in recent decades that are discussed here. While these standards share a lot of common ground, there are some differences among them. While military standards, such as MIL-STD-105, are no longer supported by the U.S. Department of Defense, there are many comparable standards to use which are supported by various standards organizations. In this paper, the reader will be introduced to these derivative standards and how they compare to each other and to MIL-STD-105. In the second part of this series, MIL-STD-414 and its derivative standards will be discussed for the inspection of variables data. Their ties to MIL-STD-105E and its derivatives will also be used to tie together all the standards in this article as well.
