To identify the non-value activities and waste/reduction opportunities, a total of two years (April 2017 to April 2019) of in-process tests results of two products are gathered and statistically evaluated. Taking in consideration that testing results and quality historical data (deviation records, batch records) from those in process testing resulted in a low occurrence of quality events, and according to the switching rules described in the ANSI/ASQ Z1.4, the current sampling frequency (one sampling inspection every 30 minutes) can be changed the current normal inspection frequency (every 30 min) to a reduce mode inspection.
