When acceptance sampling is used to judge the quality of an ongoing production process, the quality of successive items may exhibit statistical dependence that is not accounted for in standard acceptance-sampling plans. Computing the probabilities required to design sampling plans for general dependent processes is often complex, and sometimes intractable. This paper presents an efficient method for estimating single-sampling attribute plans for any production process model that can be simulated. Numerical illustrations are given.
