Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to provide an overview and our perspective of recent research and applications of statistical process monitoring. The focus is on work done over the past decade or so. We review briefly a number of important areas, including health-related monitoring, spatiotemporal surveillance, profile monitoring, use of autocorrelated data, the effect of estimation error, and high-dimensional monitoring, among others. We briefly discuss the choice of performance metrics. We provide references and offer some directions for further research.
