We suggest a monitoring procedure to detect changes in the mean of the stochastic process. The monitoring procedure is based on penalized least squares estimates. Unlike the fluctuation (FL) monitoring, we use the numbers of nonzero estimates not the fluctuations of sequential parameter estimates. We investigate the behavior of the proposed monitoring procedure by means of a simulation study and compare its performance with CUSUM monitoring.
