Acceptable Quality Limit

Tags: Quality

AQL is a standard used to decide on a sample size to be randomly inspected and the number of critical, major and minor defects that are allowed for an inspection lot to be "approved". These decisions are based on the total order size as well as the inspection level required by the buyer. AQL is widely used in the garment industry as a cost-effective and reliable way to predict the defect rate of a shipment as a whole and is a methodology that is preferred to 100% final inspection due to time and cost savings.
