In this study, group acceptance sampling plan (GASP) proposed by Aslam et al. (2011) is redesigned where the lifetime of
test items are following Pareto distribution of 2nd kind. The optimal plan parameters are found by considering various
pre-determined designed parameters. The plan parameters were obtained using the optimization solution and it also
concludes that the proposed plan is more efficient than the existing plan as it requires minimum sample size.
