Practical Acceptance Sampling is a hands-on introduction to the inspection of products and services for quality assurance using statistically-based sampling plans.
In today’s era of global supply chains, the path from raw materials to final product often takes place over multiple companies and across multiple continents. Acceptance sampling is key in the 21st century environment.
Acceptance sampling plans provide criteria and decision rules for determining whether to accept or reject a batch based on a sample. They are therefore widely used by manufacturers, suppliers, contractors and subcontractors, and service providers in a wide range of industries.
The book introduces readers to the most popular sampling plans, including Military Standards and civilian ISO and ANSI/ASQC/BS standards. It covers the design, choice and performance evaluation of different types of plans, including single- and double-stage plans, rectifying and non-rectifying plans, plans for pass/fail and continuous measurements, continuous sampling plans, and more.
Practical Acceptance Sampling is suitable for courses on quality control and for quality practitioners with basic knowledge of statistics. It offers clear explanations, examples, end-of-chapter problems, and illustrations of state-of-the-art online resources. Methods are illustrated using Microsoft Excel, online calculators, and SQCOnline.com. However, any statistical software can be used with the book.

About the author
Top reviews from other countries
pro: The book gives reasonable good overview of the various sampling method out there.
Con: This book deals with statistics, which is non-intuitive material by nature, hard to grasp even for people which deals with statistics on daily basis (I happen to be such a person). Unfortunately, the writer did not invest enough effort to alleviate the non-intuitiveness of the material (by almost completely neglecting graphics, by not giving clear and concise definitions for each parameter, variable and equations used, by not explaining the Excel functions used, etc.). In addition, there are many inaccuracies in the text and equations which makes it even harder to understand.
Another issue are the cross-references (page numbers, equation numbers and figures numbers), in the kindle version, do not work properly (I'm not sure I can blame this on the writer, but she is responsible).
Therefore, I would not recommend this book to most people.
