In that case correction of chromatic aberration is strongly dependent on the correction of the monochromatic aberration.
In the original design the primary wavelength's monochromatic aberration will match the target aberration value, by construction.
In each iteration the chromatic aberration is made to match better the monochromatic aberration value.
The idea is to separate the chromatic aberration content from the monochromatic aberration content and use standard lens design software optimization tools, such as global optimization and iterative glass substitution.
