Chapter 16: Acceptance Sampling (Standards and Methods)
Determining the right acceptance sampling method (plan or procedure) and making the right decision when nonconformance is found during the inspection has an effect on budgets (inspections cost money), schedules (incorrect sampling and the handling of nonconforming elements take time), and functionality (limitations or failure). This chapter discusses the meaning and importance of establishing a correct acceptance sampling method and issues to consider when nonconformance is found during an inspection.
