Design of Economic Sampling Plan Based on Empirical Bayesian Approach
It is necessary to estimate the percent nonconforming units in accepted lots for designing an economic sampling plan. Hahn(1986) solves the problem of estimating the number of nonconforming units in lots that pass zero-defect sampling inspection. He shows that the average number of nonconforming units in these lots can be estimated from the number of accepted lots and the number of lots rejected with a single nonconforming unit.
