We have recently had several requests for information on statistical sampling protocols and note that it is very difficult to obtain copies of Military Standard 105D issued by the Department of Defense in 1963. As many of our readers know, the ANSI/ASQ standards are based upon MIL-STD-105D.

As a courtesy to our readers we post MIL-STD-105D below. The extensive Sampling Tables and the clear explanation of Switching Rules in MIL-STD-105D is a most valuable resource for Quality Assurance professionals.

We highly recommend the excellent 2013 article on ANSI/ASQ Z1.4-2008 by Eugenie Webster published by the Institute of Validation Technology. However, due to copyright restrictions we cannot post this article which our professional and academic readers can obtain through their institutional journal access subscription service.
