I'm curious about how this situation should be correctly handled:

Normal Scenario:
1. Customer calls in with an issue with the production environment
2. Care creates an Incident Ticket
3. Turns out the issue is an error, so it is now a Problem Ticket
4. Engineers take the problem ticket and create a Defect Ticket
5. Defect is fixed, all is well Smile


Questionable Scenario
1. Engineer identifies an issue with the production environment
2. Engineer creates a Defect Ticket
3. Engineering group fixes the defect

My question:
Does the engineer need to go back and create a problem ticket? What is the benefit of the problem ticket if a Defect Ticketing system also exists?

Here's what's currently happening:
-all Problem Tickets create Defect Tickets
-not all Defect Tickets were created by Problem Tickets

Should the Engineers *always* create Problem tickets if they identify defects in production?

You are not using the terms, and particularly "problem", in a way that is familiar to me. I would need to understand what you mean by problem and defect and incident. In ITIL terms it does not sound as if you had identified a problem.

However, I am confident that only you can answer your question. Whether your engineer should always create a problem ticket when s/he detects a defect depends on three things:

1. what your policies say.

2. how the lines of control work between the various processes.

3. what you want to do with the information (e.g. how you want to correlate and audit the various ticket regimes).

Im not sure you understand ITIL correctly, what is a 'Defect Ticket'?
