Continuous Sampling Plan - definition(s)

Continuous Sampling Plan - In acceptance sampling, a plan, intended for application to a continuous flow of individual units of product, that involves acceptance and rejection on a unit-byunit basis and employs alternate periods of 100 percent Inspection and sampling. The relative amount of 100 percent Inspection depends on the quality of submitted product. Continuous sampling plans usually require that each t period of 100 percent Inspection be continued until a specified number, i, of consecutively inspected units are found clear of defects. Note: For single level continuous sampling plans, a single d sampling rate (for example, inspect one unit in five or one unit in 10) is used during sampling. For multilevel continuous sampling plans, two or more sampling rates can be used. The rate at any time depends on the quality of submitted product.
