Hi, I would like to ask some question. Hope they don't sound stupid Embarassed

I'm currently defining change priority. I have set the priority to emergency, high, medium and low. Can anyone tell me if there's any standard on determining what goes where?
How can I define each priority?

I have a list of historical log from our help desk. What is the proper way to classify related change request log?
I mean do I have to set a predefined classifications for the priority and category, then group the log into each respective priority/category?
Or I do it the other way around?

Thanks in advance

Asril

Aah, the beauty of ITIL... never a how to guideline Rolling Eyes

Our approach to defining priority was to base it on impact to business. Not only the underlying infrastructure, but in terms of business services impact based on costs, reputation and legal factors (if applicable).

Certain amount of component failure impact and business impact analysis was required to set benchmarks. You HAVE to include business (not only IT) folks because ultimately it is the business services provided to paying customers that are impacted. (guessing here, but this is usually the case).

As far a a set of predefined classifications, you may have some in your ticketing tool, depending on what you use (HP Service Desk, Remedy, etc). But these classifications are only as meaningful as the basis for defining them and their use to report and improve on change process.

I hope this gives you an idea how to approach priritization.

Thanks,

Michael

I too am working on defining change priorities.

Question...Is it common to match change priorities to Incident priorities? My original thought was to use Standard change, Major change, and Emergency Change...but this doesn't match the 6 different priorities used for incident/requests.

Thanks!
