This paper presents a procedure to solve a chance constraint programming problem with sum-of-fractional objectives. The problem and the solution procedure are described with the help of a practical problem - assembled printed circuit boards (PCBs). Errors occurring during assembling PCBs are in general classified into three kinds, viz. machine errors, manual errors and other errors. These errors may lead to the rejection of the major portion of the production and hence result the manufacturer a huge loss. The problem is decomposed to have two objective functions; one is a sum-of-fractional objectives and the other is a non-linear objective with bounded constraints. The interest is to maximize the sum-of-fractional objectives and to minimize the non-linear objective, subject to stochastic and non-stochastic bounded environment. The first problem deals with the maximization of the profit (maximizing sum-of-fractional objectives) and the second deals with the minimization of the loss (errors), so as to obtain the maximum profit after removing the number of defective PCBs. © 2012 Elsevier Inc.
