An important problem to be addressed by diagnostic systems in industrial applications is the estimation of faults with incomplete observations. This work discusses different approaches for handling missing data, and performance of data-driven fault diagnosis schemes. An exploiting classifier and combined methods were assessed in Tennessee–Eastman process, for which diverse incomplete observations were produced. The use of several indicators revealed the trade-off between performances of the different schemes. Support vector machines (SVM) and C4.5, combined with k-nearest neighbourhood (kNN), produce the highest robustness and accuracy, respectively. Bayesian networks (BN) and centroid appear as inappropriate options in terms of accuracy, while Gaussian naïve Bayes (GNB) is sensitive to imputation values. In addition, feature selection was explored for further performance enhancement, and the proposed contribution index showed promising results. Finally, an industrial case was studied to assess informative level of incomplete data in terms of the redundancy ratio and generalize the discussion.
