Who owns public companies?

   User Avatar 
   Public Limited Companies are owned by their shareholders. Because only public limited companies are listed on stock markets, all of whom are by definition, virtually anyone with enough money to buy shares on the stock market could be a potential co-owner of a public company.

How are cars built?

   User Avatar 
   Humans and Machines Together Cars are built by a combination of humans and robots (programmed by humans) on an assembly line. Some cars are totally built by hand, basically limited production cars, classic cars, or something special. Some others are totally built by machines. Quality checks are normally made by humans. All cars are built through an assembly line process, some on the assembly line, some with the parts going to the car instead of the car going to the parts. There are two distinct assembly processes involved, one for unibody design cars (the most popular type today) and another for body on frame vehicles (most all trucks, and most rear wheel drive cars). In the unibody design, the body weld shop is the first stage, in which the major body panels - the floor, the roof and the side panels, are first tack welded within a fixture. Later, after the body is released from the framing fixture, "respot" welds are applied, likely 1500 or more, and most by robot. Reinforcement brackets
   and supports for components are then welded and the body becomes very stiff. Unibody cars have a lot of heavy supporting parts which require arc welding as well, usually wire fed MIG welders are used, either by robot or by manual means. Then bolt on components, including the doors, the trunk lid and the hood are assembled, using special fixtures to maintain proper clearances for a good fit. The next major stage is that the body is selectively metal finished by disc wheel abrasives to eliminate any defects caused by dirt within dies. It takes a special skill to do this job, even to notice the potential defects which will become glaringly obvious after painting. The next stage is phosphate coating, which cleans all the die oils and any dirt and applies a texture to the metal for painting. Next stage is prime painting, which is almost always done by dipping in a long, deep bath unit and use of an electric current to "plate" the primer to the metal. The primer paint is baked in ovens running
   about 200 degrees Celsius. The next stage is topcoat paint and again, most of this has been automated with either reciprocating beam sprayers or robotics. As there are usually multiple color possibilities, multiple paint pipes run to the spray booths, and back to keep the paint circulating. Multiple layers of topcoat are applied, each one having to be set up to allow a "flash off" time to elapse between coats. Thereafter the topcoat is baked. Thereafter a similar process is done using "clear coat" paint, and baked again. Thus, three baking stages for the body - primer, topcoat and clearcoat. Body framing, welding and painting consume about two-thirds of the cars total time in assembly. But, the last third of the time in system, the "general assembly" stage, the "bolts and nuts" assembly, occupies most of the human labor. The interior is first assembled in a logical order - floor carpets, windshields and door glass, heating and air conditioning, pedals, headliners, lighting, instrument
   panels, steering columns. The last stage for the body interior is generally the seat installation. The next stage is the power train installation. Before the body is finished, in parallel time, the engine has been "dressed" with wiring, fuel injection system, and accessory drives - generator, air conditioner, power steering pump. It is then mated to a supporting structure, called a "cradle," mated to a transmission and further work is done to install the exhaust pipes, drive shafts, front and rear hubs (or solid rear axle, in some cases), brakes, springs and shock absorbers. These are set up in a special fixture to support these components. The fixture will later raise these up under the body, and workers install the "engine cradle" and the attached components to the body, working below the body which is now supported from overhead on a moving conveyor. The final assembly stage is where the wiring is connected, fuel tank installed, radiator is installed with connecting hoses, all the fluids
   added, the wheels are installed and the bumpers, grille and external lights assembled. Now the car can be started and is tested using a dynamometer to check acceleration, transmission function and brakes. The steering alignment is later done on rollers with the engine spinning the wheels. Any assembly error corrections are done usually in stalls, similar to an auto garage, and then the car is shipped. The body on frame vehicles are built in a similar fashion, with these differences: The body is simpler, less parts to weld, as the attaching surfaces for the engine and suspension are part of the frame, not the body. The frame acts as the assembly fixture, and the engine/transmission unit is directly assembled to the frame, along with the front hubs, rear axle, suspension components, chassis wiring, steering and brake parts and the fuel tank. This comprises the "chassis." This work can be accomplished more easily, standing above the frame instead of under the body as with unibody cars.
   Thereafter the body is lowered to the finished chassis, and a similar process is employed as with unibody cars.

Where does Accumulated Depreciation appear?

   User Avatar 
   Accumulated depreciation is a contra asset account. So it goes with the assets but works in reverse from normal assets. So the debit side won't be increases, but rather decreases. And the credit side will be the increases. And it will be grouped with the fixed asset that's being depreciated. This way, you'll be able to see the original value and all the depreciation that's been taken.

Is Automatic Wealth Solution a scam or not?

   User Avatar 
   "Automatic Wealth Solution" kind of says it all. It's a scam. If one had an "Automatic" solution they'd not need to advertise to you, or ask you for money. Money represents human labor, and other things of intrinsic worth that one way or another represent human labor. There is never anything "automatic" about that.

   In the US government the President is higher, but in a company the CEO is the highest. In order to clarify this it should be noted that the office of CEO does not exist in the US Government. Also, in the business world a person can be both the CEO, Chief Executive Officer and President.

What is meant by the term customer satisfaction?

   User Avatar 
   Customer satisfaction is a measure of how the products or services that are supplied by a company match up against the customer's expectations of that product or service. For example, if you purchase an item from a TV Commercial that guarantees customer satisfaction, it must be a product that matches your expectations of how good you think the product will be or how good it will perform. There's a customer satisfaction index for measuring these expectations closer.
