    Re: supervision / monitor ?

    Or, indeed, 'to oversee'. ("Short words are best..." Churchill - and he should know, he wasn't just a statesman; he won the Nobel prize for literature in 1953 - Nobel Prize in Literature - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Wikipedia says in but I prefer for.)

    NOTE: 'oversee' [=supervise] does NOT mean the same as 'overlook' [=fail to notice].

    Re: supervision / monitor ?

    Hi rj948,

    To my thinking there are no two ways about it: both are correct

    to monitor = check, detect,follow,keep an eye on, keep track of, keep under surveillance, note, observe, plot, record, scan, supervise, survey, trace, track, watch.

    to monitor = to keep close watch over; supervise: monitor an examination.

    Our customer Mr. Wong will come to your factory to monitor the container loading on June 12.=Our customer Mr. Wong will come to your factory to supervise the container loading on June 12.

    Mr. Wong, the customer, will be at your factory on June 12 to oversee loading the container.
    Note that, monitor implies feedback.

    Re: supervision / monitor ?

    oversee (verb) = to direct and watch over the work and performance of others: boss, overlook, superintend, supervise, watch over.


    Feedback is usually a feature of automation.
