Dynamic Screening problems arise from a variety of applications where we need to sequentially monitor the performance of individuals to detect any malfunction as early as possible. These applications have stimulated much recent research in the literature, and a new methodology called dynamic screening system (DySS) has been developed. By comparing the longitudinal performance of a given individual with that of well-functioning individuals and by sequentially monitoring their difference, DySS can detect their significant difference early so that the potential damage to the given individual can be avoided or reduced. This paper aims to introduce recent research on DySS in different cases, including cases with univariate or multivariate performance variables and cases with independent or correlated observations.
