Decomposition Algorithms for Two-Stage Chance-Constrained Programs

We study a class of chance-constrained two-stage stochastic optimization problems where second-stage feasible recourse decisions incur additional cost. In addition, we propose a new model, where ``recovery" decisions are made for the infeasible scenarios to obtain feasible solutions to a relaxed second-stage problem. We develop decomposition algorithms with specialized optimality and feasibility cuts to solve this class of problems. Computational results on a chance-constrained resource planing problem indicate that our algorithms are highly effective in solving these problems compared to a mixed-integer programming reformulation and a naive decomposition method.
