Describe in Detail

Distinguish between the single sampling plan and double sampling plan. Discuss how the O. C curves can be used for comparing two sampling plans.

Explanation

A single sampling plan in which a decision about the acceptance or rejection of a lot is based on one sample that has been inspected where double sampling plan when a decision about the acceptance or rejection of a lot has not been reached after single sample inspection from a submitted lot, a decision will always be reached when the second sampl

Describe in Detail

Define completeness. Verify whether Bin (1, p) is complete.

Explanation

Completeness: It is a property of a statistic in relation to a model for a set of observed data. In essence, it is a condition which ensures that the parameters of the probability distribution representing the model can all be estimated on the basis of the statistic: it ensures that the distributions corresponding to different values of the parame
