Designing a tightened normal tightened sampling plan requires sample sizes and acceptance number with switching criterion. An evolutionary algorithm, the genetic algorithm, is designed to identify optimal sample sizes and acceptance number of a tightened normal tightened sampling plan for a specified consumer’s risk, producer’s risk, and switching criterion. Optimal sample sizes and acceptance number are obtained by implementing the genetic algorithm. Tables are reported for various choices of switching criterion, consumer’s quality level, and producer’s quality level.
