The Acceptable Quality Level
(AQL) recognizes that variations can happen and that 100 percent performance is not always possible.
Does the performance requirements summary prescribe a very strict standard and a very low acceptable quality level
I am seeing low-volume castings coming in at acceptable quality levels
and low costs.
The economics of quality require that management establish acceptable quality levels
as performance standards.
It used Military Standard 105-D, originally written for production of military spare parts, in establishing its statistical sampling frame and in setting acceptable quality levels

* Emphasize casting quality and develop programs to ensure meeting customers' acceptable quality levels
. Evidence that high quality and innovation are particularly important in stagnant industries comes from analysis of the 1000 businesses in the PIMS (profit impact of market strategies) data base.
Methods such as wave soldering and post-wave soldering are becoming increasingly challenged to ensure through-hole interconnections at acceptable quality levels
for complex mixed-technology assemblies.
