PPMY Index and Problem Occurrence Trend

In our research we use the PPMY index to compare the reliability of vehicles. The PPMY index of a certain model is defined as the *problems reported per thousand vehicles per Year*.

If the total number of problems reported by GMC Yukon owners in the last 15 years is 614, and the age of the vehicle is 15, the PPMY index can then be calculated as

PPMY Index = 614 / 89,360 / 15 * 1000 = 0.46.
