Abstract The concepts of “equitable quality level” (EQL) and “error-areas” are defined in terms of the operating characteristic and the prior distribution of incoming lot quality. Asymptotic expansions are obtained for them in terms of derivatives of the prior distribution and moments of an auxiliary random variable, the latter depending only on the elements of the sampling plan. It is indicated how these results can be of use in constructing plans having certain optimum properties.
