Avoid catastrophes like the one happened in Bhopal (India)
There was a leak of Methyl Isocyanate that killed more than 10,000 people in just the first week

SAVING BILLIONARY LOSSES IN INDUSTRY
The Marsh Risk Consulting report (2001) identified 379 abnormal events in the hydrocarbon industry, with losses exceeding $ 10 trillion in the period 1970-1999.
The average annual loss was approximately US $ 700 million, with 25 of these events exceeding individual losses of US $ 150 million or more.

Stanley, G.M.; Vaidhyanathan, R. A Generic Fault Propagation Modeling Approach To On-Line Diagnosis and Event Correlation.  Submitted to 3rd IFAC Workshop on On-Line Fault Detection and Supervision in the Chemical Process Industries, Solaize, France. June 4-5, 1998.
In industrial environments it is common for industrial plant operators to do their jobs by silencing process alarms because they have become noise instead of helping to detect and diagnose abnormal situations. This is because it is very easy to configure alarms in modern electronic control systems, and operators are inundated with "alarms" that do not help them to perform their tasks, but that they hinder them. This is why international standards (ISA 18.2, EEMUA 191) seek to standardize the alarm systems of industrial processes, defining first what is an alarm and then defining criteria to rationalize the alarms that these systems deploy.

The techniques for fault detection and diagnosis, measured with criteria that define early detection and diagnosis, discrimination between different faults, robustness to noise and uncertainty, identification of new faults, identification of multiple faults, ease of explanation of Faults and adaptability, suffer from one or more of these criteria, which necessitates a new approach to solve these shortcomings. ... an alternative is proposed that is the use of an Extended Fault Dictionary, that through a rule inference engine performs the integration of several techniques for the Early Fault Detection and Diagnosis.

It is necessary to increase observability to avoid Process Safety events.
