Acceptance sampling plans for percentiles based on the inverse Rayleigh distribution


In this article, acceptance sampling plans are developed for the inverse Rayleigh distribution percentiles when the life test is truncated at a pre-specified time. The minimum sample size necessary to ensure the specified life percentile is obtained under a given customer’s risk. The operating characteristic values (and curves) of the sampling plans as well as the producer’s risk are presented. Two examples with real data sets are also given as illustration.
