I have prepared a few videos that explain how to use the ANSI tables (also known as “AQL tables”).
Here is the first one. In less than 7 min, it will show you:
- How to find the number of samples to check;
- What the AQL limits are for each category of defects;
- What the arrows mean;
- How to also read the tables for double sampling plans.

Let me know if something is unclear! Thanks.
In future videos, we’ll go more in-depth. We’ll study when using these tables is applicable, and why they are clearly in favor of the supplier.
This is a fantastic website and resource – thank you.
I was curious about this tutorial about AQL. If the acceptance level of critical defects is 0, then how can this be confirmed without 100% inspection? The table goes down to 0.01% defect rate, which requires a minimum sample size of 1250 in order to detect a defect at that rate. If a 0% critical defect rate is acceptable, I can’t see how this can be achieved without 100% inspection (ie. your sample size = batch size in order to reject shipment for that single defect found).
Renaud Anjoran says
“Acceptance zero” means “Acceptance zero within a certain sample”, not among the whole population.
And an “acceptance zero” plan does not use the ISO 2959-1 standard. The tables would be different.
I understand – that makes sense.
