How do I add the Charting web part?

In this article, you will learn how to add and configure the EPM Live Charting (also referred to as the Chart Control) Web Part to any page. EPM Live also provides a number of pre-built Charting Web Parts for easier configuration. Note: In order to view and configure the Charting Web Part, Microsoft Silverlight must be installed on the local client machine (end user computer).
