OCvar {AcceptanceSampling}R Documentation

Operating Characteristics of an Acceptance Sampling Plan


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


OCvar(n, k, type=c("normal"), ...)



A vector of length 1 giving the sample size.


A vector of length 1 giving the absolute distance, in units of the standard deviation, between the specification limit (based on the distribution of the items) and the acceptance limit (based on the distribution of the sample mean). See Schilling (1982) page 226 for details.


The possible types relate to the distribution on which the plans are based on, namely, normal.


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


Typical usages are:

    OCvar(n, k, s)
    OCvar(n, k, pd, s)
    OCvar(n, k, pd, s, s.type)

The two forms use a default type of "normal". Note that for the normal distribution the value of the standard deviation must be given. It is assumed to be the population standard deviation; this can be changed by letting s.type="unknown".

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).


An object from the family of OCvar-class, namely of class OCnormal.
