This paper describes the development of a parts classification system for a production lot, where it is used a digital processing system that enables viewers to recognize the pieces when they meet or not previously defined characteristics. To perform and analyze the quality control for the production lot is used a discrete probability density, which is frequently used in quality control processes. This distribution was the Binomial distribution, widely used in quality control processes in situations where a solution has two possible outcomes, success or failure of a parameter of a set of samples provided.
