Standard Practice for Demonstrating Capability to Comply with an Acceptance Procedure
|Publication Date:||15 November 2011|
This practice provides a general methodology for evaluating single-stage or multiple-stage acceptance procedures which involve a quality characteristic measured on a numerical scale. This methodology computes, at a prescribed confidence level, a lower bound on the probability of passing an acceptance procedure, using estimates of the parameters of the distribution of test results from a sampled population.
For a prescribed lower probability bound, the methodology can also generate an acceptance limit table, which defines a set of test method outcomes (for example, sample averages and standard deviations) that would pass the acceptance procedure at a prescribed confidence level.
This approach may be used for demonstrating compliance with in-process, validation, or lot-release specifications.
The system of units for this practice is not specified.
