# Example 2: Creation Date Outside Working Times

## Overview

This example considers working times and holidays. The creation date is outside the working times that were defined in the service time profile, therefore it cannot be used for calculating the reaction and solution points. Instead, the system searches for the next possible working day and uses it as a basis for calculation.

## Calculation of Reaction Points

Because the creation date is outside working times, it cannot be used for the calculation. The system therefore finds the next possible working day and uses it for the calculation.

Working times: Monday - Friday, 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM, holiday: Monday, 4/13/2009, Next possible working day = Tuesday, 4/14/2009

Formula: Next possible working day + SL Reaction Time = Reaction Point

• Incidents 1-4: Tuesday, 4/14/.2009 8:00 AM + 1 hour = Tuesday, 4/14/2009 09:00 AM

## Calculation of Solution Points

Because the creation date is outside working times, it cannot be used for the calculation. The system therefore finds the next possible working day and uses it for the calculation.

Working times: Monday - Friday, 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM, holiday: Monday, 4/13/2009, Next possible working day = Tuesday, 4/14/2009

Formula: Next possible working day + SL Solution Time = Solution Point

• Incident 1: Tuesday, 4/14/2009 8:00 AM + 1 day = Wednesday, 4/15/2009, 8:00 AM
• Incident 2: Tuesday, 4/14/2009 8:00 AM + 3 days = Friday, 4/17/2009, 8:00 AM
• Incident 3: Tuesday, 4/14/2009 8:00 AM + 5 days + 2 days (1 weekend) = Tuesday, 4/21/2009, 8:00 AM
• Incident 4: Tuesday, 4/14/2009 8:00 AM + 10 days + 4 days (2 weekends) = Tuesday, 4/28/2009, 8:00 AM
