Abstract

The paper presents an economical model for double variable acceptance sampling with inspection errors. Taguchi cost function is used as acceptance cost while quality specification functions are normal with known variance. An optimization model is developed for double variables acceptance sampling scheme at the presence of inspection errors with either constant or monotone value functions. The monotone value functions could be descending or ascending exponentially. In the case that inspection errors have exponentially functions, we can find the best value for inspection errors regarding to the sample number and other economical parameters. Finally sensitivity analysis has done on model parameters and some numerical examples are given to demonstrate how the developed model is applied.
