Report Output and Formatting

An Objective Progress Report Report will automatically create two charts. The first chart shows the number of iterations on the x axis and the objective function value on the y axis. Each sub-element of the objective function (as specified in the constructor) is displayed.

The second chart shows the percent change in the objective function terms over the course of the simulation.

These charts can be used to confirm the progress that is being made by the solver, and help in making decisions about how many iterations should be allowed in order to achieve an acceptable convergence.
