Course aim

To provide guidance on the different types of acceptance sampling plans/quality tools and their benefits.

Course description

An acceptance sampling method allows continuous control of the quality of products.

It is a statistical procedure, used in quality control, which involves testing a batch of samples to determine if the proportion of units having a particular attribute exceeds a given percentage, and are thereby accepted or rejected.

At the BSI Training Academy, you have the full support and guidance of a world-class BSI tutor at your disposal and learning is through an activity-based, delegate centred approach, resulting in enhanced retention and application to your own workplace.
