Lot Acceptance Sampling
• Assume single random sample of size n from a process or a very large lot.
• Binomial distribution is appropriate.
• Refer to as type B sampling.
Sampling Plan
• Specifies
• the sample sizen
• the acceptance numberc
• An operating characteristic(OC) curve shows the probability of lot acceptance for a given level of incoming lot percent defective p
LTPD Plans
• The quality level at 10% probability of acceptance (consumer’s risk) is called the LTPD.
• This rejectable quality level (RQL) is highest percent defective (poorest quality) tolerable in a small percentage of product.
• Borderline of distinction between a satisfactory lot and an unsatisfactory one.
• LTPD plans are used for many product qualification plans to assure consumer protection.
Common Sampling Problem in Industry
• There are constraints on sample size based on limited time, money, or other resources.
• There is often the need to adjust sample size and corresponding acceptance number while holding LTPD constant.
Limitations of Tables
• LTPD values restricted to only those listed.
• There are finite ranges of sample sizes and acceptance numbers.
Example Case
• Reliability qualification plan for integrated circuits calls for stressing a sample of 300 units for 1000 hours. Pass requirement is no more than three failures.
• Early samples are precious, costing approximately \$10,000 each and are needed for other evaluations.
• How can the engineer reduce the sample size and allowed failures while holding the LTPD constant?
Approaches by Engineer
• First, the LTPD value must be determined.
• Then, LTPD tables may be consulted to see if n = 300 and c = 3 are tabulated.
• Approximation may be necessary:
• Checking LTPD table, we see n = 333 and c = 3 for LTPD = 2%.
• For c = 1, LTPD = 2%, we need n = 195.
Graphical Techniques*

*Applied Reliability, 2nd ed., P. Tobias and D. Trindade

Graphical Results
• For n = 300, c = 3, LTPD = 2.2%.
• For LTPD = 2.2%, c = 1, n ~ 180.

There is a limitation in these graphs to

only c = 0, 1, 2, or 3.
