The entire lot may be accepted or rejected based on the sample even though the specific units in the lot are better or worse than the sample.
There are two types: attributes sampling and variables sampling.
Acceptance Number: In quality management, 1) A number used in acceptance sampling as a cut off at which the lot will be accepted or rejected.
For example, if x or more units are bad within the sample, the lot will be rejected.
In attributes sampling, the presence or absence of a characteristic is noted in each of the units inspected.
In variables sampling, the numerical magnitude of a characteristic is measured and recorded for each inspected unit; this type of sampling involves reference to a continuous scale of some kind.
ABC System: In cost management, a system that maintains financial and operating data on an organization's resources, activities, drivers, objects and measures.
It usually implies acceptance of the order by the supplier.
Care must be taken in evaluating the nature of the demand: Is it a volume change, is it a change in product mix, or is it related to the timing of the order?
Absorption Costing: In cost management, an approach to inventory valuation in which variable costs and a portion of fixed costs are assigned to each unit of production.
Accounts Payable (A/P): The value of goods and services acquired for which payment has not yet been made.
Accounts Receivable (A/R): The value of goods shipped or services rendered to a customer on whom payment has not been received. Accreditation: Certification by a recognized body of the facilities, capability, objectivity, competence, and integrity of an agency, service, operational group, or individual to provide the specific service or operation needed.
