Acceptable Quality Level (AQL)

Also referred to as Assured Quality Level. The largest quantity of defects within a certain sample size that can make the lot definitely acceptable. Customer will definitely prefer the zero defect products or services and will ultimately establish the acceptable level of quality. There is, however, only one ideal acceptable quality level—zero defects—all other quality levels are compromises based upon acceptable business, financial and safety levels.
