In this paper, we propose the conditional optimal spacing defined as the optimal spacing after specifying a predetermined order statistic. If we specify a censoring time, then the optimal inspection times for grouped inspection can be determined from this conditional optimal spacing. We take an example of exponential distribution, and provide a simple method of finding the conditional optimal spacing.
