A nonlinear planning methodology for synthesizing operating procedures for continuous chemical processes is developed. The methodology makes use of the hierarchical, distributed, objected-oriented modelling framework described in the first paper of the two-part series. The important algorithms used in the various stages of planning are presented, and the properties of these algorithms, in terms of their correctness and completeness, are stated and proved.
