Acceptance testing is carded out by taking a sample from every batch manufactured and subjecting it to a wide range of measurements under various conditions. The size of the sample selected varies according to the AQL (acceptable quality level) value chosen. The AQL is the maximmn average percentage of defective items which is considered tolerable. The lower the AQL value, the larger the sample must be. Tables known as 'sampling tables' are provided which statistically give the number to be tested, and the number accepted (which pass all the tests), against the AQL value.
Less weight can be handled if the body has to work in a space which is restricted because access is difficult, or because the equipment is installed in a small area. Lifting capacity will also be reduced in other circumstances - for instance, on a ship which is rolling. These weight limitations must be considered in the equipment design, particularly in mechanical units, so that they are not exceeded by any single complete item which will have to be manhandled in or out of the equipment. Even when the weight is within the limits, all but the smallest and lightest units must be provided with some convenient handle or other facility for lifting.
Two simple rules apply here - put the noisy parts of a machine as far from the operator's ears as possible, and find out when ordering an equipment what is its maximum specified noise level. Noise can be reduced by replacing worn components, by damping out vibration, by insulating the source of noise, or by insulating noise-reflecting surfaces such as walls and ceiling. Another important consideration in the working environment is lighting. Either too much or too little can be tiring. Too much lighting can be caused by glare from 42 An Elementary Guide to Reliability highly polished or other reflecting surfaces, or from bright lights within the f i e ~ f f vision.
