A systematic approach is presented for the assessment of operability in design of chemical plants. This approach provides a new quantitative measure of the process operability, and allows the designer to systematically select the best design. An integrated strategy based on dynamic MINLP formulation is introduced in order to incorporate flexibility and controllability aspects into the design procedure. A mini integrated plant is considered as an example to illustrate the application of the proposed methodology.
