Active Standard ASTM E2819 | Developed by Subcommittee: E11.30
Book of Standards Volume: 14.02
Significance and Use
The reason for preserving military sampling standards is that many organizations throughout the world still use these standards in their current form. MIL-STD-1235B is no longer supported by the U.S. Department of Defense as of the mid-1990s and is out of print, but does exist in the public domain. This practice represents a conversion of MIL-STD-1235B to an ASTM-supported standard.
This practice provides the tables and procedures for applying five different types of continuous sampling plans for inspection by attributes. These continuous sampling plans are discussed in Sections 6-10 of this practice and each section includes information on:
(a) Initiation of 100 % inspection in use.
(b) Requirements on when to switch to sampling inspection.
(c) Conditions warranting a return to 100 % inspection.
(d) When a change in Code Letter, if desired, can be made.
(e) What to do when the checking inspector finds a defect that was originally found conforming by the screening inspector(s), that is, ineffective screening.
(f) Situations where a defect is found before the switch to 100 % inspection causing excessive periods of 100 % inspection so action must be taken, that is, long periods of screening.
Section 6 (Section 2 in MIL-STD-1235B) describes specific procedures and applications of the CSP-1 sampling plans
Section 7 (Section 3 in MIL-STD-1235B) describes specific procedures and applications of the CSP-F sampling plans
Section 8 (Section 4 in MIL-STD-1235B) describes specific procedures and applications of the CSP-2 sampling plans
Section 9 (Section 5 in MIL-STD-1235B) describes specific procedures and applications of the CSP-T sampling plans
Section 10 (Section 6 in MIL-STD-1235B) describes specific procedures and applications of the CSP-V sampling plans
1.1 This practice establishes tables and procedures for applying five different types of continuous sampling plans for inspection by attributes using MIL-STD-1235B as a basis for sampling a steady stream of lots indexed by AQL.
1.2 This practice provides the sampling plans of MIL-STD-1235B in ASTM format for use by ASTM committees and others. It recognizes the continuing usage of MIL-STD-1235B in industries supported by ASTM. Most of the original text in MIL-STD-1235B is preserved in Sections 6-10 of this practice.
1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
