In this paper a possibility of designing the sampling scheme is discussed from the information theory. A design procedure for the Tightened-Normal-Tightened sampling scheme is established based on the Kullback – Liebler information and minimum sum of risk. A table giving the values of the parameter of TNT scheme of type TNTSS (nT,nN;c) indexed through the Average Quality Level and Limiting Quality Level is presented. The proposed procedure is simple and applicable to practical usage.
