Infographic: Manual Installation vs. Packaged Installation

In reference to my previous post about Software Packaging/Repackaging, here is a graphic example of time comparison between installing 5,000 copies of an application manually, versus spending 40 minutes packaging it first and deploying it via a "silent" (unattended) installation process.  I admit the numbers are examples only, and that I'm excluding the packaging time itself, which can vary from minutes to days (in some cases), and that I'm roughing out the "Configure" and "Work" time.   However, the "Wait" time is entirely eliminated with Packaging because you no longer have to sit at each computer and wait for the next prompt to appear in order to click "Next" and so on.
