Abstract: In quality control, we used to develop different types of sampling plans to ensure the quality of product lifetime. In this paper, we develop a group acceptance sampling plan (GASP) for lot resubmitting, to ensure the quality of product lifetime assuming that the product lifetime follows the exponentiated Fréchet distribution. The GASP parameters are determined by satisfying the specified producer's and consumer's risks according to the experiment termination time and the number of testers. We compare the proposed plan with the ordinary group sampling plan and found that the proposed plan requires less sample size. Two examples are used for illustration.

Keywords: exponentiated Fréchet distribution; resubmitted lot; group acceptance sampling plan; life test; producer's risk; consumer's risk; percentile life.
