Scatterplot. This is a type of mathematical diagram that uses cartesian coordinates to display values across a set of data.
Parallel Coordinatesgraph. This chart show a set of vertical parallel lines, equally spaced, that represent the inputs and outputs. Each design option is represented as a polyline whose vertices sit on each parallel axis. The position of the polylines vertices on the axis corresponds to the value of the input or output.
optioneeringprocess, it may be beneficial to visualize it using a parallel coordinates chart, as it will be easier to filter options after you run them to explore different goals.
optimization process, it may be beneficial to visualize it using a scatterplot chart, as it will make it easier to find the best trade-off between two objectives and see the Pareto front. For more information on multi-objective optimization and the pareto front refer to our section on the objective function.
