Complex industrial process has long processes, many system levels and a wide range of potential fault distribution space, which is a hotspot in the current fault diagnosis field. Firstly, the current mainstream fault diagnosis methods in process monitoring are classified and summarized. Secondly, this study adopts the combination of quantitative and qualitative, which is based on data and knowledge. A system-level holographic fault diagnosis framework for complex industrial process is proposed, which provides a complete set of techniques and solutions for process monitoring in complex industrial plant-wide process. Compared with current fault diagnosis methods, the framework not only includes fault detection and fault identification, but also includes root cause diagnosis, fault propagation path identification, quantitative fault diagnosis and evaluation. It is quite a practical method for process systems, which can effectively reduce or avoid the fault occurrence, guarantee the quality of the product, and improve the production efficiency and safety of enterprises. Finally, the development trend of fault diagnosis technology and problems to be solved are prospected.

Key words: process systems, plant-wide process, fault diagnosis, fault propagation, fault assessment, production, safety
