In this article, a modified continuous sampling of type II is provided for finite production runs. The suggested sampling plan revises the continuous sampling plan-2 of Yang (1983). The proposed plan places no predetermined limit on the number of items to be inspected until the second defect is detected when in partial inspection mode. A similar derivation to that of Yang is used to find an approximation to the average outgoing quality of the modified continuous sampling plan-2 in finite production runs. Some tables are provided to aid in the selection of the clearance number and sampling fraction when the production run length and an average outgoing quality limit are given.
