In the present paper is developed a statistical process control inspection procedure based on a new simple-to-implement and effective double sampling scheme for the c control chart, aimed at the minimization of the number of inspected observation units and warranting fixed levels for the type I and II error risks. In particular, the formulations of the false alarm risk α, the power P of the chart, and the expected number of inspected observation units for the developed inspection procedure are given, whereas a macro of Microsoft Excel is adopted to solve the tackled problem. In order to illustrate the application of the developed approach and to investigate on the influence of several operating parameters, numerical examples are carried out and the related considerations are given. Finally, by comparing the performance of the developed inspection procedure with that of the related classic c chart scheme, meaningful reduction of the number of the inspected observation units can be achieved by adopting the proposed approach.
