A multipurpose/multiproduct plant has to deal with many combinations of tasks ordering and units working rate that leads to accumulation problems. These problems are handled using storage tanks, but their location within the flowsheet is predetermined and not subject to optimization. In this work we will determinate the location of storage tanks for the optimal short-term scheduling. The plant is under parametric uncertainty, and to solve the problem we will use the SIM/OPT framework.
