OC2c {AcceptanceSampling}R Documentation

Operating Characteristics of an Acceptance Sampling Plan


The preferred way of creating new objects from the family of "OC2c" classes.


OC2c(n,c,r=if (length(c)<=2) rep(1+c[length(c)], length(c)) else NULL,
  type=c("binomial","hypergeom", "poisson"), ...) 



A vector of length k giving the sample size at each of the k stages of sampling, e.g. for double sampling k=2.


A vector of length k giving the cumulative acceptance numbers at each of the k stages of sampling.


A vector of length k giving the cumulative rejection numbers at each of the k stages of sampling.


The possible types relate to the distribution on which the plans are based on, namely, binomial, hypergeom, and poisson.


Additional parameters passed to the class generating function for each type. See Details for options.


Typical usages are:

    OC2c(n, c)
    OC2c(n, c, r, pd)
    OC2c(n, c, r, type="hypergeom", N, pd)
    OC2c(n, c, r, type="poisson", pd)

The first and second forms use a default type of "binomial". The first form can calculate r only when n and c are of length 1 or 2.

The second form provides a the proportion of defectives, pd, for which the OC function should be calculated (default is pd=seq(0, 1, 0.01).

The third form states that the OC function based on a Hypergeometric distribution is desired. In this case the population size N also needs to be specified. In this case, pd indicates the proportion of population defectives, such that pd*N gives the actual number of defectives in the population. If N or pd are not specified they take defaults of N=100 and pd=seq(0, 1, 0.01). A warning is issued if N and D=N*pd are not integers by checking the value, not the object type.


An object from the family of OC2c-class, namely of class OCbinomial, OChypergeom, or OCpoisson.
