Framework: DD010 – dd010_v01


This is one of the more tricky chart templates. Make sure you study the data sheet to be sure you understand the pattern for entering the data. It's probably easier to put all of the data points for the y axis in and then all of the data points for the x axis. This tends to make things go a little smoother.

Series Keywords: cost curve, dual-scale column

A typical cost curve (dual-scale column) is a graph of production costs as a function of total quantity produced. There are, of course, variations on this theme. Be sure you look carefully at the way the data sheet is populated in the template so that you get the correct results when you populate it with your own data. It is not difficult to plot these charts, but it is not a mindless activity. The basic chart template for a cost curve is a scatter chart that has the points connected. So you're essentially drawing a continuous line.

When this page is placed into your template, it will take on the attributes of your template. Check the FAQs associated with working with data-driven charts, best practices, and the tutorial to familiarize yourself with ways to get the optimal results.
