Abstract : The paper introduces and develops a new concept in statistical sampling in the form of Price - Adjusted Single Sampling (PASS) with linear indifference. The basic purpose in developing this inspection technique is to eliminate the process of rejecting lots, a common practice of all currently used sampling procedures. The origin of acceptance sampling is first discussed in order to illustrate historically how various industrial inspection problems have given rise to different sampling techniques. The basis and statistical model for PASS are developed such that a particular plan may be formulated and implemented. The theory is then extended to include the sampling risks incurred by the producer and consumer. This leads to both an operating curve which describes now a plan may be expected to function, and to PASS Tables, which provide sample sizes for plans which encompass a wide variation in consumer and producer risks.
