Degradation test is often performed in order to ensure high reliability of an industrial product at the manufacturing stage. Typically, a test is conducted by taking a sample. Therefore, adopting an effective acceptance sampling plan is an important issue. However, reliability literature scarcely dealt with such a topic. The main purpose of this paper is to design a single sampling plan for a lot of industrial products in lieu of degradation test. We consider both fixed and random effects models to describe degradation patterns of samples. Proposed procedures are applied to the case of keyboard degradation test.
