A subset selection procedure R for binomial populations is considered for the problem of selecting the best of k vendors whose manufacturing processes have the probabilities p sub 1,...,p sub k of turning out an item which conforms to specifications. The operating characteristics i.e. selection probabilities and expected size of the selected subset of this rule are related to the underlying p sub is, the common sample size n, and d. Formulae both exact and asymptotic are given for these quantities for slippage as well as equi-spaced parametric configurations. Tables and graphs relating these quantities are presented for three specific slippage configurations. Numerical illustrations are given to show the use of the tables in determining the sample size n and the constant d to be used in the rule R.
