Subject: Year of manufacture (used to calculate piG) in PRISM
Is the year of manufacture (used in calculation of growth rate pi factor piG)the year a part was first manufactured? Or is it the year you bought it? For eg. if I buy a transistor today, is the year of manufacture 2002, or is it the first year this type of transistor was first manufactured?
