Fundamentals of Acceptance Sampling Training Course

An acceptance sampling method allows for continuous control of the quality of products.

It is a statistical procedure, used in quality control, which involves testing a batch of samples to determine if the proportion of units having a particular attribute exceeds a given percentage, and are thereby accepted or rejected.

This course is an introduction into Acceptance Sampling and therefore the following topics are not covered: producer and consumer risk, OC curves and control limits.
