Overview for Variables Acceptance Sampling (Accept/Reject Lot)

Use Variables Acceptance Sampling (Accept/Reject Lot) to determine whether to accept or reject a lot of incoming material based on the data from a representative sample.

For example, suppose you have a sampling plan that indicates that you should randomly select and evaluate the lens thickness of 259 lenses from a shipment of 3,600 lenses. Minitab uses the mean and standard deviation from your actual measurements to compare with the specification limits to determine whether you should accept or reject the entire shipment of lenses.
