One sided acceptance sampling by variables : the case of the Laplace distribution

Résumé : The theory of acceptance sampling by variables is well known when the underlying distribution is normal. When the normality assumption is not true, using the usual normal case method can be quite misleading. In this paper we deal with the Laplace distribution for both the standard deviation known and then unknown. We establish a decision rule for accepting a lot of product containing a defective proportion p. We determine the density function of the decision rule statistic, for small and large sample sizes. We give some pratical ways to choose the sample size and the acceptance constant to obtain a desired operating characteristic curve.
