Comments:
It is better to consider collection time instead of billing time for
recovery period calculation, however this is not practical for most operators. This KPI
measures not the efficiency of RA department of the company but the efficiency of RA
process in the company.

This KPI is only about customer revenues but not about 3rd party

added to the data warehouse in the measurement period will be a good estimation for the
denominator. As the Numerator, any such data that went through an effective validation

Mean Time Between Failures (MTBF)
XLS Name:

Category:
Business Metric
Description:
operational effectiveness of the Assurance process by assessing the
mean time between failures. This metric is measured over a period as the ratio of the Mean
time between repairs and the number of trouble tickets closed over the period. The mean
time between repairs considers the revenue system size (such as live ports) without taking
into account the service outage time (calculated as the MTTR for the period for all the trouble
tickets over the period)

BMS Business Metrics Specifications

Comments:
Example calculation: Revenue System Size = 15,606 ports * 30 days
= 468,180.00 days. MTTR in days = 213.7 mins = 0.148 days. Number of trouble tIckets
closed = 4792 trouble tickets. Therefore MTBF = (468,180.00-(.148*4792)) / 4792. Therefore
MTBF = 97.6 days. See the Counting Rules tab for more information on how Service
Outages are counted to ensure consistency among participants.

Description:
Relational Net Promoter Score
Comments:
Note that the relational NPS is the score measured periodically over
the lifetime of a customer. It measures the relationship, rather than the process the customer
interacted with. It is used to measure the Net Promoter Score of the overall brand/offering.
Net Promoter, Net Promoter Score, and NPS are trademarks of Satmetrix Systems, Inc.,
Bain & Company, Inc., and Fred Reichheld. The standard Net Promoter Score question
asked of the customer is: How likely is it that you would recommend [your company] to a
friend or colleague? The answer is on a scale of 0-10, where 10 is extremely likely. Please
note that this metric relates to consumer and SME customers.
