decisive prediction; sequential batch acceptance sampling scheme; exponential lifetimes; Bayesian predictive distribution; utility structure
A sequential batch acceptance sampling scheme is derived in which measurements are exponential lifetimes and at each stage one can either scrap the batch, accept the batch or test another component of the batch. The approach uses the Bayesian predictive distribution and a utility structure which depends on the lifetimes of the untested components. The sampling scheme is obtained through a dynamic programming formulation.
