This procedure is certainly rigorous but difficult and expensive according to Vianello [14]. As a result, other subjects prefer to perform sampling with a completely randomised choice on the basis of A and B numbers only. A useful example can be the calculation of a ‘reference’ number (A/B ratio). Should A = 1,000 and B = 20, this ratio, A/B, would be 50. In this situation, the sampler may: • Randomly take the first sample unit from the ideally ordered row of 1,000 products, and • Proceed to sample other units with the interposition of ‘A/B’ between the previous and the successive piece.

2. This PC-based approach can easily transform ‘three classifications’ sampling plans that have been proposed in the European Union (EU) by the Regulation (EC) No 2073/2005 and successive modifications, according to Parisi and co-workers [17]. 3 Quality Control and Economic Sustainability It has to be recognised that QC activity can be expensive for FP. The same argument is clearly applicable to all industrial sectors. Normally, FP consider the increase in productivity (number of pieces/unit of labour or time) and the consequent reduction of ‘accessory’ or auxiliary costs related to supplementary items (including QC and QMS), according to Parisi [1].
