Job suspension autowrite

I work as a programmer for industrial lasers and automated punch/shear and panel bending machines. These machines are windows based. When an operator is running jobs he has the ability to suspend any job and restart at anytime, and even select what step they may want to go back to or forward to. The machines will also automatically create a suspend file if the operater does this action or if the machine goes in error…again allowing to check the error and then continue. In suspend mode safeties are triggered and power is taken away from all moving parts making it safe and to take the load off the motors and energy systems

Since the machines are windows based could not a good coder create this control and apply it to Shapeokos. Possibly in a future upgraded Carbide Motion and controller

Just curious

Thanks
