Vantage 6.1 Shop Floor BAM for lot transitions

I am going to write a .p program to notify employees immediately after
logging onto a job how many pieces are left to run on a particular
operation. This is an idea we came up with to address overscanning
operations. That way if an operation is going to have a lot change
during that shift an operator could be the first line of defense for
making sure it happens smoothly.

Has anybody already done this, and are will to share the code? Anybody
have any creative ways for handling lot transitions? Keep in mind batch
processing is not really an option for us. We are generally a
continuous flow shop for longer running jobs.
