1.

Acceptance sampling is applied to batches of items during the production process. 

 

 2.

Acceptance sampling procedures are applicable for inspection both before and after production. 

 

 3.

Flexible acceptance sampling revises the sampling plan in response to actual results. 

 

 4.

The purpose of acceptance sampling is to decide whether a batch of items satisfies pre-determined standards. 

 

 5.

A good sampling plan will occasionally reject a lot with very good quality. 

 

 6.

Acceptance sampling is most useful when the cost consequences of passing defectives are low. 

 

 7.

Acceptance sampling procedures can be applied to both attribute and variables inspection. 

 

 8.

Acceptance sampling plans must specify the lot size, the sample size, and the acceptance/rejection criteria. 

 

 9.

In a single-sampling plan, the entire lot, or batch of items, is accepted or rejected based upon only one specified sized sample. 

 

 10.

A double-sampling plan requires a second sample of exactly twice the size of the first sample. 

 

 11.

Sampling plans are designed considering both the cost and time required for the inspection.  

 

 12.

In a double-sampling plan, a second sample may not be taken if the results of the first sample are conclusive. 

 

 13.

Acceptance sampling is a form of ins
