Abstract : A variable plan for acceptance inspection is based upon the sample mean and the sample standard deviation. This program computes a value K, such that the sample mean plus K times the sample standard deviation will indicate the acceptability of a lot. If the specified upper limit is exceeded, the lot is not acceptable. This program will compute K from a given sample size and one point on the operating characteristic curve, or will compute K and the sample size from two points on the operating characteristics curve and will then draw the operating characteristics curve.
