Question and answer
Bell Computers, LTD., located in Liverpool, England, assembles a standardized personal computer from parts it purchases from various suppliers. The production process consists of several steps,
starting with assembly of the “mother” circuit board, which contains the central processing unit. This assembly takes place in the CPU Assembly Department.
