The purpose of this paper is to propose the group acceptance sampling plans for when the lifetime of the submitted product follows the Pareto distribution.
The single‐point approach (only consumer's risk) is used to find the plan parameter of the proposed plan for specified values of consumer's risk, producer's risk, acceptance number, number of testers and experiment time.
Tables are constructed using the Poisson and the weighted Poisson distribution. Extensive tables are provided for practical use.
The tables in this paper can be used only when the lifetime of a product follows the Pareto distribution of 2nd kind.
The result can be used to test the product to save cost and time of the experiment. The use of the weighted Poisson distribution provides the less group size (sample size) as than the plans in the literature.
By implementing the proposed plan, the experiment cost can be minimized.
The novelty of this paper is that Poisson and the weighted Poisson distributions are used to find the plan parameter of the proposed plan instead of the binomial distribution when the lifetime of submitted product follows the Pareto distribution of 2nd kind.
