In addition, going in search of the best tool of information gathering, along with a redesign of the same one to achieve a better effectiveness. The work shows that it is possible to statistically demonstrate the impact of the use of a sampling system, on the sample rejection rate, but also identifies that it is not the only reason for rejection of samples.
