Evaluation of Continuous Sampling Plan Indexed through Minimum Angle and Maximum Acceptance Quality

Ms. V. Nirmala, Mr. K.K Suresh


In this paper, an evaluation and quality designing methodology is designed to determine the quality measures in a new procedure for Continuous Sampling Plan –M indexed through Minimum Angle method and Maximum Acceptance Quality. Tables and procedures are provided for the selection of the parameter for the plan. Numerical designs are also provided for the shop floor applications of the manufacturing industries. Minimum Angle indexed plan provides a method for designing sampling plan based on higher quality product selection with minimum inspection cost and time, instead of classical determination about quality in operating characteristic (OC) curve measurement. Minimum Angle method is to provide wider potential applicability in manufacturing industry ensuring higher standard of quality product selection attainment.
