In this paper, a repetitive group acceptance sampling plan is developed for a truncated life test when the lifetime of an item follows different distributions. Sample sizes required for the acceptance numbers are determined when the consumer’s risk and the test termination time are specified. The operating characteristic values according to various quality levels are obtained. The results are explained with examples.
