German term or phrase: stichprobenweise
I need help with the word in the following sentence: er uberpruft stichprobenweise, ob das vereinbarte Qualitats-Kontrollsystem befolgt wird. The text is to do with quality control procedures and checking the thickness of paint coating

by (the) random sampling (method)


Explanation:
This is statistical quality control. Select any part at random in every lot and determine by a pre-decided norm how many must pass, otherwise reject the lot.

Concerning Gaunt's comment.


Explanation:
Concerning Gaunt's comment. It is not really possible for Nick to take Gaunt's comment in any "right" way. Over the past six months, many questions have been asked that may have sounded simple to other translators; I know I have asked and answered some. If the asker does not know what a term means then he has the right to ask. Of course, everyone else then also has the right not to answer if the question is unworthy. The asker certainly need not apologize for not knowing.
