ANSI/ASQ Z1.4 (formerly MIL-STD 105) is a generally accepted standard for acceptance sampling by attribute (pass/fail) data. Sampling plans are defined by a sample size of n and an acceptance number c, and lots are accepted if the sample contains c or fewer nonconformances or defects. Double sampling and multiple sampling plans seek to reduce the amount of inspection by accepting very good lots quickly, and rejecting very bad lots just as quickly. Sequential sampling plans minimize inspection by inspecting one item at a time and using statistically calculated decision limits to accept or reject the lot.

Why should you attend this webinar?

Inspection is a necessary but non-value-adding activity, which means the organization should do as little as possible as long as the inspection plan meets customer requirements for quality assurance. Sequential sampling is the most efficient procedure for sampling by attributes, and any ANSI/ASQ Z1.4 plan can be converted into a sequential sampling plan with roughly equivalent performance in terms of the operating characteristic curve. This webinar will begin with an overview of ANSI/ASQ Z1.4, and then show how to convert any of its normal or tightened inspection plans into a sequential sampling plan. The situation for reduced inspection is somewhat more complicated but, as inspection is in fact reduced, less is to be gained in this case from a sequential plan.
