High Value Added Manufacturing is a manufacturing model whereby the sale price of the end product is considerably higher than the production cost.

And I have no idea where to begin representing this diagrammatically. I need something that's not immediately 'chart-like' because that wouldn't fit very well in the particular presentation format. I'm totally stuck for ideas; can you guys help?

How about an illustration of a factory, with on one side:

  • materials going in
  • a little pile of coins going out

and on the other side:

  • product going out
  • a great big pile of coins coming in
  • 1
    shaft going in, rainbows coming out :)

  • I want to avoid piles of coins because I dont want the presenter to look like he's profiteering, but I like your idea

  • Okay, so the client pitched in and opted for a pile of coins... So err, you win!
