Praise for the Book

For those who want to discover the variety of sampling plans at their disposal, this book will be a great resource. I have been using a single-stage sampling plan by attributes for years, and now I see that it is not always the best tool to use.
I should add that it is a college textbook first, before being a practitioner's guide. But it explains the concepts simply and clearly, and it refers to the calculators at (very easy to use).

Good text for those writing test plans. Very straight forward and practical in its presentation. It has been very beneficial in doing my quality engineering work
