The issue of chemical process optimization when at the operation stage the design specification should be met with some probability and the control variables can be changed has been considered. A common approach for solving the broad class of optimization problems with normally distributed uncertain parameters were developed. This class includes the one-stage and two-stage optimization problems with chance constraints. This approach is based on approximate transformation of chance constraints into deterministic ones. © 2013 American Institute of Chemical Engineers AIChE J, 59: 2471–2484, 2013
