Dear Kyle:

Here are a few papers that deal with statistics or SPC applied to various
aspects of
the RP process. The copy of this letter I'm sending to you also has the

One question in return: I'm aware that U of AL has work going on in RP. Do
you guys have a web page(s) describing this work or involvement with
industry/univ collaborations? I've not been able to find it, if you do.
