# Example 1: Basic Calculation

## Overview

In this simple example, 24/7- Support is set in the service time profile. Neither working times and holidays nor time zones are considered. Therefore, the escalation points are calculated according to the formula: Creation Date + Reaction Time or Solution Time from the respective service level.

## Calculation of Reaction Points

Formula: Creation Date + SL Reaction Time = Reaction Point

• Incidents 1-4: Monday, 1/5/2009, 12:00 AM + 1 hour = Monday, 1/5/2009, 1:00 AM

## Calculation of Solution Points

Formula: Creation Date + SL Solution Time = Solution Point

• Incident 1: Monday, 1/5/2009, 12:00 AM + 1 day = Tuesday, 1/6/2009, 12:00 AM
• Incident 2: Monday, 1/5/2009, 12:00 AM + 3 days = Thursday, 1/8/2009, 12:00 AM
• Incident 3: Monday, 1/5/2009, 12:00 AM + 5 days = Saturday, 1/10/2009, 12:00 AM
• Incident 4: Monday, 1/5/2009, 12:00 AM + 10 days = Thursday, 1/15/2009, 12:00 AM

This example assumes that the working times are set to 24/7 and no holidays are considered.
