Assessment of Average Outgoing Quality Levels in Parts Per Million (PPM)(STABILIZED May 2016)
This standard is intended to provide a uniform method of calculating an estimate of the proportion
nonconforming in finished components and to provide a standardized definition of the quality index
referred to as Average Outgoing Quality (AOQ). The method used here is primarily directed at
components whose production or procured volume is large enough, during some predefined sampling
period, to give statistically meaningful information.
