Abstract : This research is designed to develop a procedure for the truncation of the Probability Ratio Sequential Test plans in MIL-STD-781B which will improve upon the present technique by obtaining less variance in the truncated risks of the test plans. In accomplishing this goal, an analysis of variations in the intercepts and slopes of the accept/reject lines was performed. In order to observe the change in the producer's risk (alpha) and the consumer's risk (beta) a computer program was developed which evaluated these risks while varying the slopes and intercepts of the accept/reject lines. The final procedure developed employs the use of a program of this type. (Modified author abstract)
