Frequency-based approach is used very seldom in practice. It is mainly due to the fact that it requires high level of knowledge about the process. In fact, we need to identify process frequency characteristics, i.e. its model. Morover the process should be linear. The number of reports on CPA in frequency domain is very limited. These methods are hardly used in practice. Finally, the measures in the frequency domain are applicable to the linear process what significantly limits applicability. Nonetheless, some results of this research area has to be presented.
