4. Service Expectations.
a. Problem Classification. The following Problem
Classification Table definitions are used for
classifying customer issues. These classifications
insure consistent treatment of problems handled by
support. Severity 3 (Degraded Operations) is the default
severity level that all cases are initially set to
unless otherwise specified by the customer or the
support engineer. The support engineer handling the case
will work with the customer to establish what severity
should be assigned. The following are the four levels
used by Active Software to prioritize a customer's
Problem Classification Table
Error Classification Criteria
The problem is affecting time-critical applications with
production work at a standstill. The system is completely
Severity 1 (Critical) unusable and no work around is currently known. The
affected system must be for production purposes.
The system is significantly impaired such that key business
Severity 2 (Serious) processes can not be conducted and no known work around is
Severity 3 (Degraded) The system can not function as designed however key business
processes are not interrupted.
Severity 4 (Minimal) Problems are low-impact. Little or no impact to daily
b. Response Expectations. In the event that an error is
discovered in the Licensed Software which causes the
software not to operate in conformance with the
published specifications or applicable documentation,
Customer shall notify Active Software in writing (email
or fax) of the error (including a reasonable description
and the severity level based on the Problem
Classification Table). Active shall respond to such
notice and will make reasonable efforts to assign
engineers to resolve problems at the level of effort
indicated by the Response Expectation table. If
unspecified most new cases will be set to a severity
level of 3 until a clearer determination can be made.
The following Response Expectation table specifies
the level of response that will be given to a
customer issue at each step of the process based
upon the assigned severity of the problem. The
table specifies the maximum amount of time elapsed
to complete each step.
Step 1 represents the acknowledgment of a
customer's problem and the beginning of
information gathering process.
Step 2 represents the time frame by which the
problem is being actively addressed and a
temporary patch, correction, or workaround
is provided. The goal will be to provide a
fix or a work-around for a problem as soon
as possible. Critical issues will be worked
on continually during the business day until
a satisfactory problem resolution can be
reached. To have work continue on problems
during non-business hours requires the
purchase of a 24x7 coverage plan and the
commitment by the customer to make their
resources available on an after hours basis
Step 3 represents when a permanent solution will
be available. This may be in the form of a
tested permanent patch or a completely new
release depending upon what the problem
requires and time allows. When possible
permanent fixes will be provided in the next

c. Escalation Process. All new cases will initially
be taken and handled by the support
representatives on duty at the time of the call.
All problems with a severity level of 1 to 3
will be escalated if a solution or plan of
resolution cannot be achieved within the
designated amount of time as described below. To
ensure that progress can continue, Customers
with Severity 1 (Critical) issues must provide
Active with a highly available contact during
this period who will assist the Support and
Development organizations with data gathering,
testing, and applying all fixes to their
environment. If Active cannot duplicate the
problem in-house, then Support may request
access to the Company's computing environment.
Support management will be made aware of issues
according to the following timeframes. Active
requires that as succeeding levels of Active
management become involved in the resolution
process, the Customer must provide contacts at
similar levels within their organizations, to
ensure that the level of management involvement
matches the decision-making level dictated by
the resolution requirements of the problem.
Elapsed time represents the number of business
hours (not clock hours) that have passed since
the issue was first opened by Active Software
