Sampling plans are widely-recognized as a means to accept “good lots” and reject “bad lots” of materials, components, or finished pharmaceutical products during in-coming, in-process, or final inspections. Often, acceptance sampling plans are inadequate for their intended use, not based on statistically valid rationale, and linked to risk resulting in the acceptance of materials, components, or finished goods that do not meet pre-determined criteria resulting in scrap, rework, complaints, recalls, and regulatory compliance scrutiny. Understanding how these plans are derived and function is crucial to selecting the appropriate acceptance sampling process to minimize the possibility of risk and rework.
This course will expose you to the requirements for acceptance sampling, the correct use of sampling plans, how sampling plans work, various sampling strategies, and understanding the linkage to risk.
At the completion of this session, you will be able to:
- Identify the Requirements for Sampling
- Understand Acceptance Sampling
- Discuss the history of Sampling Plans
- Describe the Use of Sampling Plans
- Understand How Sampling Plans Work
- Identify Various Sampling Strategies
- Understand the Linkage To Risk
