A consultant system which aids operators during a chemical plant emergency is proposed. The structure of its database is so designed as to allow the acquisition of the necessary data to complete the database by use of the family of greatest sets of candidates defined for the fault diagnosis subsystem used in it. The consultant system and the tool which aids one in constructing its database are made for an oxidation subprocess of an acetic acid process in order to demonstrate the usefulness of this system by simulation.
