Chapter 8 2 Acceptance Sampling Example A small business currently performs acceptance sampling on all shipments of blank CDs they receive to verify that the diameter of the CD is on target. The target value for CD diameter is 12 cm. They take a SRS of 100 CDs from each shipment. If the sample average is within the range (11.996, 12.004) the business will accept the shipment. Suppose on Friday they received a shipment of 10,000 blank CDs from their supplier. Unknown to the small business, the shipment had an average diameter of 12.003 cm. The sample of 100 CDs had an average diameter of 12.005 cm.

Chapter 8 6 Sampling Variability Sample statistics will vary from sample to sample. Population parameters remain fixed as long as the population remains the same. Process parameters remain fixed as long as the process remains the same. Sometimes we know a parameter value and sometimes we don’t.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
