Abstract:

A simple procedure using tabulated values for the design of reliability acceptance sampling plans is described in this report. The failure distribution is considered to be exponential with parameter theta and the prior distribution of theta is taken to be inverted gamma. This procedure is applicable when acceptreject decisions are to be made regarding a sequence of systems or lots. For specified combinations of producer-consumer risks, the procedure described here can be used for the design of a truncated single sample plan for a system. Other single sample plans can be obtained by using the equivalence relations given in this report. The use of the design tables is illustrated via numerical examples. Author
