In manufacturing process the lots are formed by the finished produces and a series of lots are submitted for inspection, in this situation the Skip lot sampling plans are very much useful to inspect the bulk of lots. In the production process there is a possibility of making some interventions in order to meet the demands of consumers without the knowledge of quality engineers. In order to inspect the lots of finished products which are formed from such production lines, acceptance sampling plans are designed under the conditions of intervened Poisson distribution. The primary objective of this article is to design Skip lot sampling plan of kind SkSP-3 with single sampling plan as reference plan under the conditions of intervened Poisson distribution. A methodology for obtaining the plan parameters which satisfies both the consumer and the producer is discussed with illustrations.
