State-of-the-Art Coverage of the Most Widely Used Acceptance Sampling Techniques Cohesively Incorporates Theory and Practice Reflecting the recent resurgence of interest in this field, Acceptance Sampling in Quality Control, Second Edition presents the state of the art in the methodology of sampling and explores its advantages and limitations. The book also looks at how acceptance control can support applications of statistical process control and help in the evaluation of products. New to the Second Edition * Coverage of ISO 2859 and 3951 standards and the ASTM version (E2234) of MIL-STD-105E * A new section on credit-based sampling plans * Greater emphasis on sampling schemes with switching rules * More extensive discussion of accept zero plans, including tightened-normal-tightened (TNT), credit-based, the Nelson monograph for c=0, and MIL-STD-1916 Providing valuable guidelines for choosing appropriate procedures, this comprehensive second edition encompasses the most widely used acceptance sampling techniques. It lucidly provides a broad theoretical understanding of the field while offering all the information needed for the practical application of acceptance sampling plans in more

Review quote

This is a very well-presented book, covering the classic topics of inspection sampling in a thorough, lucid and insightful way. ... the tasks that this book addresses remain important. ... it is very worthwhile to have this up-to-date work, one which does include a contemporary discussion of limitations and pitfalls of sampling, as well as of benefits. ... This book is an elegant and comprehensive resource for the knowledgeable user, and so well written that the beginner will also find it congenial and rewarding ... -John Shade, Journal of the Royal Statistical Society: Series A, Vol. 174, October 2011 ... the second edition of the book is an excellent reference for anyone who wants to implement quality control on the factory floor. -Journal of the American Statistical Association, Vol. 105, No. 492, December 2010 ... Like the first edition, this one remains a comprehensive one and includes a few new topics ...This new edition continues to be equally useful for both practitioners and researchers in the arena of statistical quality control. At the end of each chapter, there are some problems, with the solutions given at the end of the text, which make it a suitable candidate for a textbook adoption. I think it will be a nice addition to your personal library! -Technometrics, Vol. 51, No. 3, August 2009 Schilling's first edition of Acceptance Sampling in Quality Control is a classic, and is considered by many as a 'must-have book' for anyone working in quality control. The second edition, co-authored with Dean Neubauer, updates and improves upon the first. ... There are several additions and updates to the second edition ... This book is a comprehensive collection of acceptance sampling methods and is an excellent mix of theory and application. ...some may tend to think that acceptance sampling is not as important as it was in the past. However, with a world economy and ever-improving technology, the relationship between customers and suppliers has changed dramatically with distance, cultures, and language all having an impact. This makes acceptance sampling as important as ever and this book as relevant as ever. -Journal of Quality Technology, Vol. 41, No. 4, October 2009show more
