    The evaluation KPI formula has a better meaning when is evaluated considering only the closed incidents:

    KPI = n of closed incidents in SLA time / n of closed incidents

  2. Sherm H.

    The KPI formula is fine as a beginning step, but you have to define what is an acceptable/unacceptable value for % incidents solved wihtin SLA time. Perhaps something like a value of 70-85% compliance is acceptable, <70% is unacceptable, and >85% is exceptional.

    The period should be choosen so that the devider (closed incidents) contains at least n (20?) incidents.
    If you want to apply percentages, it should be done on ‘big’ numbers only; there is no use in applying percentages over 2 closed incidents (I think).

    Hi All,
    indeed, it is very interesting how you handle cases when a team receives very few tickets per period (e.g. 2 or 10)? Do you use the same approach for measure (#Within time / #All resolved), or you apply some other rule? In case there are only 2 tickets for the whole period and one of them is delayed, this would lead to 50% achievement. Is this OK from your perspective?

  5. Alexandre Gerardo

    Hi Sergey,

    The approach must be the same.

    I would apply statistical filters to this (and other) KPI values. If sample size is too small, and your t-criterion, p or similar indicators are not good enough, you would return “no value” for KPI instead of actual calculated value.
