Back Office Service Level
Hello Team,
Is there a service level calculator for multiple days that is used for back office and not calls.
Or does anyone know the calculation for this?

Answer for Back Office Service Level
I am not aware of one. What sort of work are you looking to calculate and what sort of service level are you trying to create?

Answer for Back Office Service Level
Hello Jonty, thank you for your response,
I am trying to work out the number of items processed with a service level period of 48hrs / 5 days.
I have been tasked with projecting service level for an anticipated volume of work, the work in question has a 5 day service level attached were we must log all items within this time frame. However we are anticipating a back log of work items, therefore, I am looking for a calculation that can project service level including back logged items, for the items processed after 5 days.

Answer for Back Office Service Level
OK.  So what are the inputs and outputs that you are trying to obtain.
I guess that you have

Number of staff
Shrinkage
Work hours per day

For outputs you are trying to work out percentage of tasks completed within 48 hours?
Is this correct?

Answer for Back Office Service Level
Yes that is correct.
I have been tasked with projecting service level throughout a training period running from Feb 17 to June 17.
I have the number of staff available throughout, the forecast volume of work, expected work output, and have been asked to ‘project’ the SLA in this period. I am happy doing this for 24hrs, however, when the team has a 48hr SLA, I cannot work out how to calculate the SLA based on the work in / out. For example:
_________________________________________
Date:               6/02    7/02    8/02    9/02
Staff:               5          5          6          5
Work in:         100     120     90        100
Work out:       100     100     120     90
SLA:               XX       XX       XX       XX

Answer for Back Office Service Level
Hi Kathryn
You don't have enough information there to calculate the service level.  Here is the formula
Service level = [ Number of tasks completed within the service level threshold] / [Number of tasks offered] * 100
In order to work it out you would need to count the start time and end time of each task.

I also have the same problem I am trying to solve. I have a process that requires 10 Business Days SLA, how will I calculate the headcount requirement?

The calculation would be similar from 4 hours to 10 days
It may seem strange but the headcount is very similar between 4 hours and 10 days.
