Abstract

One of the most useful and effective methods with an extensive application in companies with purpose of examining the quality of the raw material in addition to final products, is acceptance sampling plans. The inspection process is assumed free of errors in most design of acceptance sampling plans. However, this assumption may not be true. In this research, an optimization model for acceptance sampling plan based on the Maxima Nomination Sampling (MNS) method which is developed for single acceptance sampling plan at the presence of inspection errors is presented. What we have accomplished in this article is to propose an economical model which involves two types of inspection errors and investigates the impact of these errors from an economical point of view then it's been compared with the a classical method for proving it 's efficiency. Furthermore, the sensitivity analysis is carried out to analyze the behavior of the MNS scheme optimal solution. The numerical studies indicate that MNS method is always more economical than classical one.
