The Efficient Frontier tab in the Scenario Comparison page can display the efficient frontier graph discussed in this section. When you click Generate Efficient Frontier on the Efficient Frontier tab and specify the constraints and performance objective (for example, maximized NPV) you want to apply, Portfolio Management invokes an optimization program (optimizer). By performing extensive calculations that reflect using various subsets of all the lifecycle entities in the scenario comparison, the optimizer generates the efficient frontier curve.
For a detailed description of the efficient frontier graph, see Understanding the Efficient Frontier Graph. For information about specifying the desired parameters and generating the graph, see Generating the Efficient Frontier Graph.
