We develop acceptance sampling plans assuming that the life test is truncated at a preassigned time. The lifetimes of the test units are assumed to follow the Birnbaum Saunders distribution. The minimum sample size necessary to ensure the specified average life is obtained and the operating characteristic values of the sampling plans and producer's risk are presented. An illustrative example is given.
