About acceptance sampling

The aim of acceptance sampling inspection is to ensure that the producer submits lots at a quality level that will be acceptable to the consumer. A real effort should be made to ensure that a system is devised that clearly places responsibility for quality with the producer. This is one of the advantages of acceptance sampling; the producer, rather than the inspector, is responsible for resolving quality issues. Producers must make sure that the quality of their product is up to standard, otherwise they face additional expense and problems with unacceptable lots.

Sampling inspection can and should lead to less inspection work, lower cost and higher quality for the customer.
