    In the Glossary . . . .The definitions for Alpha risk, Beta risk, Type I error, Type II error and the assignment of Producers Risk to Type I and Consumers Risk to Type II all seem correct.
    However the actual definition of Consumers and Producters Risk under those specific titles seems to be reversed.ย  I believe that Producers Risk is rejecting good parts as bad and Consumers Risk is shipping bad parts as if they were good.
    I know this can be tricky, can someone confirm my concern?

    That act of rejecting the null hypothesis when it is true is a Type I error.
    Failing to to reject the null hypothesis when it is false is a Type II error.
    Keepinh these consistant I would say the the producers risk is rejecting when it is good. Consumer risk shipping bad parts.
    So it seems you are correct. Please change the glossary as required.
