Abstract: In this paper, we develop acceptance sampling plan when the lifetime experiment is truncated at a pre-assigned time. The minimum sample size required to ensure a specified median life of the experimental unit is provided when the lifetimes of the units follow generalized Weibull distribution which exhibits both monotone and non-monotone failure rates. The operating characteristic values of the sampling plans as well as the producer’s risk are also presented. One data analysis is provided for illustrative purpose.
