Graph showing the economic impact of rising manufacturing costs with each product generation. For each product generation, the introductory price is high, but the starting level is assumed not to change. Over time, as newer products are introduced, the price of the existing product(s) must drop. However, the manufacturing costs of each product doesn't change. Furthermore, newer products are more expensive to make (due to process complexity, new materials consumed, etc.). Thus, the product margins are expected to decrease, as indicated by the dashed curves.

About Schools Wikipedia

All five editions of Schools Wikipedia were compiled by SOS Children's Villages. SOS Childrens Villages believes education is an important part of a child's life. That's why we ensure they receive nursery care as well as high-quality primary and secondary education. When they leave school, we support the children in our care as they progress to vocational training or higher education. If you'd like to help, why not learn how to sponsor a child?
