A determination of the threshold of inspection has been proposed based on the sensitivities by perception of panel. As the simulation in the proposed methods based on theory of signal detection are applied to determine the threshold level of experienced panels. It was found from the results that the value of index that evaluated the degree of experiensed skill enabled one to determine the threshold level of inspection.
