The purpose of this paper present a method for creating and choosing a  Bayesian single sampling scheme with a gamma prior distribution using weighted Poisson distribution. The weighted Poisson function is used to derive the average probability of lot acceptance based on defective random defective products. Gamma distribution is considered as a suitable prior for weighted Poisson distribution. It is discussed with i) Acceptance Quality Level and Limiting Quality Level, ii) control point and the relative slope at that point and iii) MAPD. Tables are provided for the easy selection of the plans.
