LOL I always wanted to start a thread with that title...

Anyhow - I have a big problem. I need a way to explain Bandwidth - Throughput to Morons. I'm looking for pictures or analogies.

Small words, of course as the audience is comprised of Corporate Executives with attention spans of a small child.

Where Tr is the 10% to 90% rise time, and K is a constant of proportionality related to the pulse shape, equal to 0.35 for exponential rise, and 0.338 for Gaussian rise.

Won't work

T = S / P

Won't work

Even this is too much - they won't understand.

So to sum up. Anyone have any pictures or analogies that correctly explain bandwidth? Please stay away from Latency and the different types of Throughput.
